Functional Behavioral Assessment

  1. The main hypothesis of the research is: trial-based behavioral analysis can be used in assessing the behavior of individuals and how it can also be used in treating behavioral problems.
  2. The opportunities of conducting the trials naturally presented all through the day. For instance, the children had to play, and that was one of the ways through which the trials could be undertaken. The students also had to take instructions, and they had to interact with each other as well.
  3. Various procedures were used for the analysis, and they related to demand, ignore, tangible, and attention. For example, trials relating to tangible toys were given to the students and then put out of their reach. The item was given back if the student was seen to have a problem. To determine attention function, the therapist could give attention to the subject for some time and then state that there was something to do thus looking away from the student. If the therapist noticed that the subject had problem behavior, the therapist could turn to the student. In determining the demand function, the subject was not given any leisure item to play with. The subject was then left alone, and the problem was determined if the subject tried leaving their seat. Ignore function was determined when the subject was left alone with no leisure item and the ignore function was determined if the subject had no consequence.
  4. Liv has Down syndrome, and her behavior is being aggressive. From the trial-based analysis, it is evident that her behavior has attention function. The information might end up affecting a defined intervention plan for the student. That is because the intervention plan aims at dealing with her aggressive behavior and it has tot focused on dealing with her attention function. Therefore, I have to come up with a plan that will deal with the attention function as well.
