Welcome to the SEMH.co.uk Functional Behaviour Assessment / Indicator tool, the first of many tools to be added to this website. Primarily a behavior assessment system for children, it also provides advice on how to improve self esteem in young people.
This tool, the behavior assessment system for children, is completely free to access (via https://behaviour.semh.co.uk) and hosted entirely online. By utilising a wide range of questions linked to key themes it provides a range of strategies and links to help support your practice. On completion of the questions, scores are allocated for the following themes:
- Sensory – behaviours that are linked to seeking or avoiding sensory stimulation
- Attention – behaviours that are linked to gaining the attention of peers / adults (attention needing)
- Escape – behaviours designed to escape from environments / situations that cause significant distress
- Control – behaviours that seek to take control of an environment / other adults in order to reduce anxieties / unpredictability.
