November 21, 2014 | 01:45 PM – 02:15 PM EST
Considering both the challenges in marshaling the resources necessary for conducting a scientifically sound and ecologically valid functional assessment process and the numerous risk factors for developing problem behavior, preventing the development of problem behavior in young children is important. A class-wide and small group curriculum for teaching skills shown to prevent the development of problem behavior will be described in this brief session.
