Functional Assessment and Intervention, 2nd Edition
A Guide to Understanding Problem Behavior
“Contemporary behavior interventions are designed based on the function of the problem behavior. In the example of the incessant talker, a functional intervention would be based on the reason she talked so much.” – James E. Carr and David A. Wilder

Problem behaviors can serve a number of functions for a person with developmental disabilities. They may provide positive or negative self-reinforcement or reinforcement from other people.

With clear examples, Dr. Carr and Dr. Wilder describe the difference between older, less effective approaches to problem behavior and a newer functional approach. They also offer strategies to assess behaviors and intervene using establishing operation (EO) modifications, extinction and differential reinforcement procedures.
