Throughout this course, many opportunities are available to post an initial response to a discussion topic as well as to respond to your classmateâ€™s responses. After you have completed the reading, and without reviewing your classmate’s responses, post your initial response to the following Discussion.
Your post should be at least 200â€“250 words in length and should extend the discussion of the group supported by your course materials and/or other appropriate resources. After you have submitted your initial post, review some of your classmateâ€™s posts and respond to at least two of your classmates. .
Part 1: What is the role of assessment, specifically functional assessment, in working with clients using ABA? Why is proper assessment, and more specifically functional assessment, important?
Part 2: Briefly present an observable behavior that would benefit from ABA intervention, including a target behavior definition. Based on our readings from this week, discuss how you would assess this behavior to help you later identify an appropriate intervention. Include a description of how you will record the behavior, how often the data will be recorded, and what type of assessment method you will use.
