NIS provides behavioral services to area schools. Behavior Analysts work with school staff to complete a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) to determine why the student is engaging in the problem behaviors. Then, a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) is created to decrease the problem behaviors, and teach the student how to get the same results using appropriate behavior. Behavior Analysts work directly with the student, implementing the BIP and modeling implementation for school staff. Behavior Analysts will then coach and train school staff on implementing the BIP, and will eventually fade out to a consultative basis. NIS also provides homebound instruction to students that are no longer able to be served in the public-school setting. Homebound instruction can take place in the student’s home, school or another community location.
