A Function-based Diagnostic Behavioral System: Addressing Problem & Replacement Behaviors
This three-hour workshop will cover a function-based diagnostic system for operant problem behaviors. A numerical four category diagnostic system for classifying problem behaviors (direct access; DA 1.0, direct escape; DE 3.0, socially mediated access; SMA 2.0, socially mediated escape; SME 4.0), as well as sub-categories delineating specific reinforcers under each category (e.g., SMA 2.2, peer attention) will be presented. Additionally a three category diagnostic system will be advanced for classifying replacement behaviors. The remainder of the workshop will cover how to diagnose the current strength and breadth of the replacement behavior in the repertoire of the client/child.
Functional assessment of problem behaviors: Experimental methods
This three hour workshop will cover functional assessment methods that involve a manipulation of variables to demonstrate function of behavior. These methods include FAB or analogue assessment tests, trigger analysis with behavioral description (non-experimental) and in-situ hypothesis tests. The author's function-based, diagnostic classification system for target problem behaviors (Cipani & Schock, 2011) provides the framework for setting up experimental test conditions for these various methods.
