Upon completion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Identify recent trends and issues related to trial-based functional analysis
  • Describe characteristics of a trial-based functional analysis
  • Describe results from a single trial based functional analysis condition indicating target behavior is likely maintained by that reinforcer
