A Discrete-Trial Approach to the Functional Analysis of Aggressive Behaviour in Two Boys with Autism.
Sigafoos, Jeff; Saggers, Elizabeth
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v20 n4 p287-97 1995
Functional analysis of the aggressive behavior of 2 boys (ages 10 and 12) with autism involved 20 brief functional assessment trials in the classroom under 3 conditions. Results showed a clear pattern in each child's aggressive behavior and suggested logical intervention strategies. The discrete-trial approach presented a practical, ecologically valid technique for functional analysis of challenging behavior. (Author/DB)
