A Functional Assessment is an evaluation that identifies the function, or reason, why a specific behavior is occurring along with factors that potentially maintain that behavior. Identifying causation of interfering behaviors allows the clinician to administer an appropriate, function-based intervention that is more likely to be effective and efficient in treatment. Functional Assessments allow the supervisor to design behavior interventions that reduce problematic behavior and increase supportive, socially appropriate skills as a replacement. Functional Assessment information can be carried out through indirect and direct measurements.
