Rather than relying on trying to decrease or extinguish behaviors based on what the behavior looks like, functional assessment helps to identify the function or “payoff” of a problematic behavior. This allows the teacher, interventionist or parent to develop effective interventions which result in effective behavior change. With The Functional Behavior Assessment Wizard, you can conduct clinical level functional assessments for multiple behaviors simultaneously using frequency or duration recording. Each assessment can be individualized by entering the specific target behaviors and conditions. The app then assists in identifying behavior functions, generating professional reports, complete with graphs.
The Functional Behavior Assessment Wizard is marketed by WhizzWatt Software and is available in the iTunes App Store for $9.99
