“Functional Assessment refers to a variety of data collection, analysis and interpretive procedures that vary widely with regard to the procedural detail but share the same goal of producing a hypothesis about what evokes and reinforces occurrences of problem behavior.” Iser DeLeon, PhD, BCBA
“Identifying reinforcers is absolutely essential when we are working on acquisition. In order to teach someone a new behavior, we need to be able to reinforce that behavior when it occurs.” Dr. Meagan Gregory, BCBA Abstract
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.

Applications of Verbal Behavior Language Intervention: How to develop and implement a language intervention program
In Part 4, Dr. Mark Sundberg expands on his previous courses and delves into developing and implementing a language intervention program based on the results of the VB-MAPP Assessments.* Dr. Sundberg overviews typical language development milestones and the implications these have for children and adults with language delays. With the assistance of a completed VB-MAPP, participants will learn the steps to beginning, developing, and implementing an intervention program. Verbal operants will be broken down, and considerations for the selection of goals will be discussed.
“For a lot of the populations that we work with, it is difficult to extract very clear, very useful information on what sort of things might function as reinforcement for them.” Dr. Iser DeLeon, PhD, BCBA Abstract
It is common for those diagnosed with autism to have some type of feeding disorder. Understanding and trying to correct a feeding disorder can be very difficult and time-consuming. Consistent and intensive treatment is most necessary for the treatment of feeding disorders. Henry Roane provides treatment assessment considerations while giving clarity to operational definitions, types of feeding disorders, and evidence-based treatments.
“It doesn’t matter—dementia etiology . . . because all of them are going to show this core clinical symptom of challenging behavior” “Nearly all individuals diagnosed [with dementia] will exhibit a behavioral symptom of dementia.” Maranda Trahan, PhD, BCBA-D
It’s not the size of the reinforcer that matters. It’s the precision with which it’s programmed that’s more relevant, the contingency of it. Saul Axelrod, PhD
