Beginning with our youngest students, chronic absenteeism is an early warning sign of dropping out. Dr. Jenson, Dr. Sprick, and colleagues have teamed up to address this obvious but often overlooked problem. Functional Behavior Assessment of Absenteeism and Truancy (FBAAT) is an assessment and intervention system that will guide you to evidence-based interventions for individual students who are chronically absent or truant.

Why is it important?

  • Behavioural interventions based on an FBA are more effective than interventions that do not take into account the purpose of the challenging behaviour.
  • Interventions that are functionally designed are generally more positive and less aversive than non-function based interventions.
  • Behavioural changes are generally faster and more complete when the intervention is function based.
  • Chronic absenteeism and truancy begin as early as first grade and are strongly correlated with dropping out of school.
  • Lost school time affects learning, assignment completion, grades, promotion, and graduation rates.
  • Truant students are four times as likely to commit a serious assault, five times more likely to report committing a serious property crime, and two times more likely to be arrested than peers who attend school regularly.
