Behavioral assessment of children
Recent studies suggest that the setting of a functional analysis could influence the results of the analysis (Lang et al., 2008 & Lang et al., 2009). The current study examines the results of functional analyses conducted in a home and contrived setting. An eight-year-old boy diagnosed with autism participated. The analysis identified the same function in both settings but with increased variability in the contrived setting.
