In this Instructor Contact Session, you will hear your instructor talk about function-based interventions. Listen to the lecture and take notes, then post a substantive response to the following question:
Create a scatter plot for an identified behavior within your workplace, report your results, and explain any patterns that may exist. Your post should be a minimum of 500 words long and supported with appropriate scholarly references. As you create your scatter plot, pay attention to the following three objectives of the activity:
You must use dimensions of ABA to evaluate whether interventions are behavior analytic in nature.
You must select function-based interventions after addressing response effort, practitioner skills, contextual fit, practicality, treatment acceptability, and administrative support.
You must describe assessment results and interventions in language appropriate for practitioners (i.e., without technical jargon, without mentalistic explanations).
Respond to at least two other learners’ posts. Comment on their interpretation and hypothesis and offer suggestion for improvement. Take into account the objectives of this activity as you give your peers constructive feedback. Include appropriate scholarly references in your feedback.
