With an understanding that behavior is multiply controlled, it seems obvious that no single form of treatment will work.
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.
