In order to support the new requirements in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) reauthorization 1997 along with the demands of accountability in education, the Stark County Educational Service Center, Department of Special Needs/Student Services makes available to districts the services of a Behavior Support Specialist.
Under (IDEA) reauthorization of 1997, school districts are required to conduct a functional behavior assessment (FBAs) for students with disabilities who are exhibiting persistent and challenging behaviors that interfere with their learning and the learning of others.  The districts must also develop a positive behavior support plan that will teach and provide the student with disabilities the strategies to successfully integrate behaviorally into the school setting.
