This workshop provides training both in conducting a functional assessment (e.g., Iwata, 1996), and in some broader perspectives of behavior treatment.  The trainers will provide explanations of the inter-related nature of each learner’s repertoires, and how this affects programming for the treatment of any particular problem behavior.  In many cases, addressing deficits in cooperation, social interest, manding (requesting) an increased number of items or activities, manding attention, tolerance for delays, or independent leisure can preclude the need to conduct a functional assessment.

Participants will learn to:

Formulate operational definitions of target behaviors

Measure behaviors

Determine the functions of problem behaviors

Select appropriate interventions
