Partnerships are important. Working with educational professionals and organizations, Linda has co-produced several products.
Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) & Student Support Plan (SSP) Project
Linda Aldridge, Rich Harrison, and Rick Gaskill, in collaboration with the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) and the Technical Assistance Support Network (TASN), led a two-day workshop with four school districts to bring mental health services and schools into partnership. The districts learned how to use functional behavior assessment (FBA) and student support plan (SSP) tools that were researched and designed by Linda, Rich, and Rick. Access these FBA & SSP tools at ksdetasn.org.
