A Step-By-Step Approach to Functional Assessment
Monika and Paul Stephany (Lenkija / JAV)

This workshop will present a five-step approach to conducting a functional assessment. Indirect assessment (interviews, questionnaires and permanent products). Descriptive assessment (defining and measuring the problem behavior). Developing a hypothesis of the function of the problem behavior. Testing the hypothesis (functional analysis).Developing an Participants will receive detailed information on how to conduct each step of a functional assessment and receive sample questionnaires, interview protocols, data collection forms and intervention plans.

Jura Tender and Emina Cholich (Australija)

This workshop will describe the earliest symptoms that are now available from these prospective studies. Participants will be shown characteristic behaviours of at-risk infants.The workshop will describe how to shape intervention targeting the early symptoms, using ABA techniques to enhance the mother-child teaching relationship, and thus shaping social awareness leading to social development. It is also important to focus on cognitive development by shaping functional attention to the environment. This early ABA is much easier to administer and its results have been quite dramatic. The presentation will include video footage of working with infants aged 12 – 18 months, utilizing the basic principles of ABA, presented in a naturalistic adult-infant interaction.

Understanding and working with problem behaviour
Neil Martin (JK)

Problem behaviour will be defined and various risk factors discussed, however,problem behaviour will be described in the context of being predominantly operant (learned) behaviour. The importance of operationally defining problem behaviour (indeed, any behaviour) will also be highlighted prior to any attempt to measure and analyse such behaviour. The workshop will briefly discuss the different ways in which behaviour analysts seek to understand the causes of problem behaviour (i.e. functional assessment) and some strategies for addressing problem behaviour will also be presented. Examples to illustrate key points will be given throughout.
