One of the most significant advancements in the treatment of behaviour disorders in persons with intellectual disabilities over the past 30 years has been the emergence of functional behavioural assessment (FBA) or “functional analysis methodology.” Now considered the standard in the field for both clinical research and practice, and mandated in U.S. federal law (IDEA, 1997), FBA identifies environmental factors that maintain and exacerbate problem behaviour and is essential to the development of reinforcement-based (nonaversive) behavioural interventions. This seminar will review the history, logic, and techniques of FA methodology as well as alternative approaches to assessment, suggest solutions for dealing with the practical constraints of assessment, and link the outcomes of assessment to the development of treatment strategies. Recent research and case studies illustrating the use of assessment and treatment procedures will be presented
