The Professional and Ethical Compliance Code states that “Behavior analysts conduct current assessments prior to making recommendations or developing behavior-change programs. The type of assessment used is determined by client’s needs and consent, environmental parameters, and other contextual variables. When behavior analysts are developing a behavior-reduction program, they must first conduct a functional assessment.” (3.01 a) and “If environmental conditions hinder implementation of the behavior-change program, behavior analysts seek to eliminate the environmental constraints, or identify in writing the obstacles to doing so.” (4.07 b). BCBA's practical application of ABA can be confounded by time and money. Hanley's 2012 article, Functional Assessment of Problem Behavior: Dispelling Myths, Overcoming Implementation Obstacles, and Developing New Lore, describes the basic tenets of the interview-informed synthesized contingencies assessment. Reading the 18 page article and answering 16 questions with 100% accuracy will give the analyst insight into new techniques for overcoming these obstacles and implementing functional analyses.
