JABA in One Take- Show Notes

This next article is over another fun and novel concept. The application of a standard visual analysis criteria for the trial based functional analysis. Quickly becoming my favorite clinically practical assessment, the trial based functional analysis excels in practicality, except for one aspect. The standard research suggests a fixed number of trials, and then examining the data in a summary format rather than continued visual analysis. This article attempts to solve that problem by promote a form of ongoing visual analysis and structured set of rules for identifying behavioral functions.
