Part 1
1. How to conduct a functional (experimental) analysis (I04). Students will also learn about various antecedent controls that could help prevent unwanted behaviors (J06).
2. How to conduct a functional analysis.
About the advantages and disadvantages of FA.
3. How to identify and develop antecedent control strategies.
4.How to use stimulus changes to prevent problem behaviors.
Part 2
As behavior analysts, we have the responsibility to communicate our approaches effectively to others. In this exercise, you will describe antecedent control strategies in language that can be understood by persons not formally trained in Applied Behavior Analysis – (parents, educators, treatment team members).
Your description should be of sufficient detail to convey your rationale for focusing on antecedent control strategies – and to educate your reader of important aspects of these approaches. Consider terminology of our field – relating to antecedent methods – that may be helpful for others to understand.
Identify and describe 2 antecedent controls using original examples.
How can these specific antecedent strategies increase the likelihood of a desired response?
How do antecedent control strategies serve as an alternative to punishment? Why are alternatives to punishment important
