He was very thorough with his presentation. I only wish that the presentation was longer and covered more information as he was such a great presenter!” – Melissa, 5/5 (Excellent) Rating


“This was the most practical FBA training I have been to. The handouts and real life examples were very helpful.” – Molly, 5/5 (Excellent) Rating


“I really enjoyed this FBA training-as pointed out, sometimes we are expecting too much from kids and only looking for compliance when we need to be digging for the root cause of the behavior. Great tools to add to my toolbox-thanks for providing that all to us at no cost!” -Marissa, 5/5 (Excellent) Rating


“Dr. Cipani was very knowledgeable about behaviors and described them in a way that was easy to understand.” Selena, 5/5 (Excellent) Rating

“I really enjoyed that Dr. Cipani covered why a student may escape contingencies (e.g., too lengthy of instruction, too difficult material). A lot of FBAs just focus on escape rather than why the student is escaping. I also appreciate that Dr. Cipani provided us with materials to use in our practice.” – Emma, 5/5 (Excellent) Rating

“At the very end, the outside validation of the FBA book authored by Dr. Cipani was impressive. Thank you for “misting us” with “Difficulty and Duration” rather than being blasted by a firehose in a typical FBA seminar.

“I enjoyed the use of real life stories to help better understand the strategies.” -Kayla, 5/5 (Excellent) Rating


“I enjoyed the real life examples. I liked how he broke down the observations well before the behavior of concern to really look at what is causing the behaviors. I even liked the questions that were prompted. It was interesting to see where others are spending their time. I thought it was unusual that others completed FBA’s so quickly but I think a better understanding for this difference in time is if you’re just doing the FBA vs. the FBA Process (where you not only determine the function, but you collect data, implement an intervention, data collect on that intervention). We have to do the whole process for our kiddos so it does take more than 6 hours. I spend at least an hour in the classroom, plus talk to the kid, teachers, parent, etc. data collect; time adds up quickly.” – Amanda, 5/5 (Excellent) Rating

“Dr. Cipani is personable and offered tips and language on how to share and explain this information to non-behavior people, which was helpful. Even the simple idea of really quickly evaluating a child’s academic proficiency and ruling that in/out is a helpful reminder, as well as how easy it can be done.” – Danielle, 5/5 (Excellent) Rating

Dr. Cipani read through the evaluation feedback and had the following to say. “I wanted one last time to express my appreciation for your time in attending my webinar through I also want to thank the many people who who wrote very nice feedback comments in regards to their evaluation of the content/experience, as well as my passion for the topic.
