To be meaningful, that plan must be reviewed at least annually; however, the plan may be reevaluated whenever any member of the students IEP team feels that a review is necessary. Circumstances that may warrant such a review include:
In the end, the process of functional behavioral assessment is complete only when the IEP team produces positive behavioral changes in student performance.
