Examples of Functional Outcomes from an RBI

By producing 6-10 outcomes, the RBI tends to be more specific than many IFSPs (McWilliam et al., 1998) and tends to have more family-level outcomes. Here is one real list from an RBI:

Original words from notes Stated in outcome form
1. Moving on stuff outside & inside (e.g., going up stairs) Elliott will play with movement on three pieces of equipment for 5 minutes each so he participates more
2. Textures outside Elliott will play in the sandbox or move on the grass for 10 minutes 3 times in a row so he participates more
3. Why not eating more? Family will find out from a qualified professional why Elliott does not eat more than he does
4. Eating variety of foods Elliott will eat a balanced diet as determined appropriate by the family and a nutritionist so he will be healthy
5. Picking up food Elliott will use a fine pincer grasp to finger feed so he can eat more efficiently
6. Making church easier Mary will have 7 activities she can give Elliott or Katie to keep them occupied during church so church participation is easier for Mary
7. Making choices Elliott will choose one of two objects presented at meals, dressing, or hanging-out time, daily for 5 days, to begin functional communication
