About Our Assessment Clinic
Our Assessment Clinic in South Tampa specializes in conducting functional analyses (Lindgren et al., 2016) individualized to each client. A functional analysis determines what aspects of the environment cause a client to engage in specific types of problem behavior (aggression, self-injurious behavior, noncompliance, property destruction, elopement, pica, etc.). Caregivers will complete a questionnaire during the intake process, which will guide our BCBAs to design an appropriate assessment/functional analysis for the client. Upon the completion of the functional analysis, a BCBA will develop a function-based intervention to treat the client’s problem behavior and recommendations for caregivers and teachers. Caregivers also have the opportunity to receive caregiver training on the function-based strategies and/or participate in the functional analysis itself. Our Assessment Clinic will be appropriate for families with clients who engage in a variety of problem behavior, which impedes functioning in school and/or home environments.
