In this course, Dr. Hanley invites you to join him on the journey of attaining lasting freedom from tantrums, aggression, or self-injurious behavior without drugs or harsh punishment but with candies, stickers, and/or tokens. It is important to understand why the problem behavior occurs in the first place and then incorporate that understanding into the teaching of transferable communication toleration skills.

Conducting a Functional Analysis (FA) may seem intimidating and almost make you want to engage in avoidance behavior, trying every other solution before resorting to doing one. Dr. DeLeon addresses behaviors that are difficult to assess and how to assess them. In doing so, he expands on how to determine functions with different topographies of behavior, determining a function with multiple topographies, and how to graph data obtained from a functional analysis.
