Yarbrough, Scott C.; Carr, Edward G.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v105 n2 p130-51 Mar 2000
The limitations of informant assessment of problem behaviors was investigated across seven situations and three participants (ages 11-18) with cognitive impairments. Informant hypotheses about the function of problem behaviors were validated by subsequent functional analyses only when informants identified their hypotheses as involving situations likely to evoke problem behavior.
