Using an interview informed synthesised contingency analysis and functional communication training to effectively increase appropriate communication and decrease maladaptive behaviours

Bobbie Hassleby

ABSTRACT: The purpose of this case study was to conduct an empirically tested functional analysis on behaviours that challenge emitted by one pupil, to determine why they were occurring (what the pupil was trying to communicate) and what appropriate communicate response could be taught to replace the behaviours. Individualised functional communication training was implemented to teach the pupil how to appropriately communicate their wants and needs and then how to respond in situations where preferred items were unavailable.
