What’s the Function?…And Why Knowing Makes a Difference
About This Webinar
All behavior can be viewed as communication. When developing behavioral interventions, it is important to consider the function, or reason for the behavior. Is the behavior in response to a demand? To obtain attention? For sensory or automatic reasons? To obtain an item or in response to a denied activity?
This training will review the four functions of behavior, why knowing the function(s) is important, and how to tailor interventions so they offer a functional equivalent for your learner.
This webinar will review:
