“A Step-By-Step Approach to Functional Assessment”
This workshop will present a five-step approach to conducting a functional
assessment. Indirect assessment (interviews, questionnaires and permanent products).
Descriptive assessment (defining and measuring the problem behaviour). Developing a
hypothesis of the function of the problem behaviour. Testing the hypothesis (functional
analysis). Developing an intervention plan.
Participants will receive detailed information on how to conduct each step of a
functional assessment and receive sample questionnaires, interview protocols, data
collection forms and intervention plans.

“ABA Centres for treating individuals with autism:
One solution to the growing need for intervention”
Abstract: Specific components needed in a centre-based ABA treatment program will
be identified. Key programs related to work with parents, preparing children for
school, and arranging for generalization will be discussed. Special features,
requirements, challenges, and advantages of centre-based ABA treatment models will
be reviewed along with a detailed description of how such centres can help deliver
intervention to more individuals while protecting the quality of services.

“Working with babies”
There is a rising incidence of diagnosis of various levels of ASD worldwide, to the extent
that it is often referred to as an epidemic. It is well established that the earlier
intervention is provided the better the results.
This workshop will describe the earliest symptoms that are now available from these
prospective studies. Participants will be shown characteristic behaviours of at-risk
The workshop will describe how to shape intervention targeting the early symptoms,
using ABA techniques to enhance the mother-child teaching relationship, and thus
shaping social awareness leading to social development. It is also important to focus
on cognitive development by shaping functional attention to the environment. This
early ABA is much easier to administer and its results have been quite dramatic. The
presentation will include video footage of working with infants aged 12 – 18 months,
utilizing the basic principles of ABA, presented in a naturalistic adult-infant interaction.

15:00–17:00 Neil Martin (UK)
“Understanding and working with problem behaviour”
Abstract: Problem behaviour will be defined and various risk factors discussed,
however, problem behaviour will be described in the context of being predominantly
operant (learned) behaviour. The importance of operationally defining problem
behaviour (indeed, any behaviour) will also be highlighted prior to any attempt to
measure and analyse such behaviour. The workshop will briefly discuss the different
ways in which behaviour analysts seek to understand the causes of problem behaviour
(i.e. functional assessment) and some strategies for addressing problem behaviour will
also be presented. Examples to illustrate key points will be given throughout.
