Conducting an Efficient FBA: Moving from Interviews to Experimental Analyses

Candice Colón-Kwedor, PhD, BCBA-D, LABA

This presentation will focus on the logic of functional behavior assessment (FBA) and how an escalating sequence of scientific inquiry can be used to identify the function of challenging behavior. Within the scope of the functional analysis (FA) process, the utility of descriptive assessment (open-ended interviews and direct observation) will be explained.  Examples of how descriptive assessment methods can be used to develop an individualized FA in the home, center/school and telepractice setting will be provided. Emphasis will be placed on how open-ended interviews and observations can be used to develop an efficient FA by identifying idiosyncratic variables to include in the analysis (e.g., environmental conditions, measurement, experimental design).  In addition, attendees will be provided decision-making rules for determining when modifications to FA conditions and/or design maybe necessary to determine function.  Furthermore, attendees will be provided an opportunity to practice developing FA components given descriptive assessment outcome scenarios.
