FBA and BIP
4. Describe the components of a Functional Behavior Assessment and Behavior Intervention Plan.
Target replacement behaviors
5. Describe the function and format of target replacement behaviors and behavior objectives.
6. Describe data collection and graphing procedures.
7. Describe a variety of single-subject designs, their elements, how they are used, and when they are used.
8. Describe the principles that underlie the selection of appropriate consequences and providing differential reinforcement.
9. Describe stimulus control, its various facets, and how it is used.
10. Describe the principle components of generalization procedures and provide appropriate rationale for training for generalization.
11. Effectively describe the elements of self-management and how it might be taught to children, youth, and adults.
1. Use the Functional Behavior Assessment procedures to determine the function of an identified problem behavior.
2. Develop a target replacement behavior (TRB) that serves the same function as the identified problem behavior.
3. Develop a behavioral objective that corresponds with the target replacement behavior.
4. Observe, count, and graph behavioral data that is based on the target replacement behavior.
5. Make data based decisions using these data to determine the most effective intervention to increase the occurrence of the TRB.
6. Employ appropriate techniques for designing the Behavioral Intervention Plan. This includes manipulating setting events, using instructional methods, providing differential reinforcement, and arranging appropriate consequences.
