Highest Degree of Primary Presenter

Master's Degree

Presentation Abstract

Individuals with disabilities often exhibit problem behavior to gain access to or escape from items, activities, people, or situations. Functional communication training (FCT) involves introducing a functional communication response (FCR) to gain access to the same reinforcement as the problem behavior. This presentation outlines how to implement FCT after the function of a specified behavior has been identified through a functional behavioral assessment. We will provide practical guidelines selecting and teaching an FCR, generalization across settings and people, and data collection procedures.
