Did you Know?

FBA's are not the only answer, easy Wisdomwhere Credit, IKEA and Education!

Problem Solving with Function in Mind:

Like an FBA, but can be accomplished in a few short meetings and requires no direct observations...it is meant to be a QUICK problem solving approach! You would still consider the antecedent (based on informal observation, teacher feedback),the problem behavior, and how to extinguish and replace the behavior

*Training on 1/15 and 2/19, 3/2 and 4/6, 2:30-4:30


Wisdomwhere Credit:

Ikea and Education? Who Knew!

The IKEA effect is based on the consumer, as client, enjoying a final product more after being a part of it's completion. Key points in the article, as to how this applies to education include:


  • "The Ikea effect appears to be entirely the result of investing energy to complete a worthwhile project and then being able to stand back and admire it's successful outcome. Simply working on a project, contributing to it without seeing it through to closure, does not appear to produce the effect at all"
  • "If you begin to look at student products through their eyes, rather than yours, you will begin to have insights into the efforts and investments that they had to make."
  • "We need to ensure our feedback comments reflect concrete steps that the students can take to further develop their worthwhile ideas."
