Join Niki for this webinar on how best to approach behavior cases. This webinar does not just cover the science of functional assessments but also looks at the approach and flow of behavior case management. The webinar reviews proactive and concise case management and the APES system to working with clients. 

This webinar will focus on the "Approach".

The Approach

  1. The consultation – the project definition, scope and goals and the functional assessment of the problem behavior.
  2.  Establishing the voice of the customer, critical to quality components. 

There is a strong case to be made for using functional assessments in your business. Interventions based on functional assessments are typically more effective. By identifying why, a problem behavior is occurring we can then develop an intervention that will directly address the function of the behavior. Interventions based on functional assessments are typically much more effective than interventions that are not (Cooper, Heron, & Heward, 2007).
