Multidimensional Functional Behaviour Assessment within a Problem Analysis Framework.
Ryba, Ken; Annan, Jean
This paper presents a new approach to contextualized problem analysis developed for use with multimodal Functional Behaviour Assessment (FBA) at Massey University in Auckland, New Zealand. The aim of problem analysis is to simplify complex problems that are difficult to understand. It accomplishes this by providing a high order framework that can be applied for mapping the problem dimensions, inter-relationships, etiology, and courses of action. The problem analysis approach is considered to be a useful guide, and its framework offers structure for psychologists who are engaged in mapping complex casework within the immediate environment of students or projects involving the wider systems of education. A contextualized process of consultation through problem analysis is outlined and discussed. This framework promotes communication and a shared understanding among all of those involved in dealing with problem situations. (Contains 14 references, 2 figures and 2 tables.) (JDM)
