  1. Functional Behavior Assesment
    enables hypothesis about relations among specific types of enviromental events and behaviors
  2. Functional Analysis
    antecednets and consequences representing those in the person's natural enviroment are arranged so that their seperate effects on problem behavior can be observed and measured
  3. Descriptive Functional Behavior Assessment
    encompasses direct observation of behavior occuring in the natural enviroment
  4. Conditional Probability
    the likelihood that a target problem behavior will occur in a given circumstance
  5. Indirect Functional Assessment
    method uses structured interviews, checklist, rating scales or questionnaries to obtain information from persons who are familiar with the person exhibiting problem behaviors to indentify possible conditions or events in the natural enviroment that correlate with the problem behavior
  6. Contingency Reversal
    exchanging the reinforcement contingencies for two topographically different responses to confirm a hypothesis about functionality
  7. Functionally Equivalent
    serving the same function or purpose; different topographies of behavior are functionally equivalent if they produce the same consequences
  8. Maintaining Contigencies
    the function of a behavior that continues it in a given context
  9. Default Technologies
    after a behavior has become more server and more frequent, caregivers result to increasingly instusive, coersive or punishment based interventions
  10. Socially Mediated Reinforcment
    an increase in behavior do to attention or access to items
  11. ABC Data Collection
    continuous recording system in which an observer records occurences of the targeted problem behaviors and selected envorimental events in a natural routine
  12. Behavior Rating Scales
    estimate the extent that behavior occurs under specified conditions using a Likert scale (never,always)
  13. Behavioral Interviews
    you may use a rating scale but an interview gets information about who what when and where in order to clarify; may involve questions that do not purtain to function
  14. Scatterplot
    a procedure for recording the extent to which a target behavior occurs more often at particular times than others
  15. Analogue Enviroments
    fake or contrived FA
  16. Natural Enviroments
    studying behavior in the natural Descriptive Anaylsis
  17. Motivating Operations
    enviromental effectives of deprivation and satiation on the value of a reinforcer
  18. Direct Reinforcment
    Automatic reinforcment does not require another person
  19. Automatic Reinforcment
    Direct Reinforcment
  20. Increased Efficacy
    interventions based on an FBA are more likely to be effective than those selected arbitarily
