Functional Analysis of Problem Behaviour

Katie Allen M.S., BCBA

Individuals with ASD and other special needs may often display a variety problem behaviours; this may include aggression, property destruction, self-injury and tantrums among many others. Often, these behaviours may significantly impact an individual’s, and their family’s, day to day life. Functional analysis is an assessment used to determine the function of behaviour (why an individual behaves the way they do), and helps determine the most effective treatment.

In her presentation, Katie will discuss what functional analysis is, general methodology, as well as relevant case studies and examples. Katie will also illustrate how sometimes results of functional analysis can be undifferentiated and idiosyncratic in nature, and further analysis is needed.

Seating will be limited, so please register for the event by emailing studentrep@bc-aba.org.
