Is It Sensory or Is It Behavior? Analyzing the Behavior and Establishing a Plan. This course will pull together all the information presented in the previous three courses and will not only answer the question "Is It Sensory or Is It Behavior?" but will help you identify and develop an intervention plan addressing both sensory and non-sensory components. A video case analysis will guide the process as participants complete the Analyzing Behavior Worksheet (ABW).

Chapters & Learning Objectives

Download Learning Objectives

1. Overview: Analyzing the Behavior, Formulating Your Hypothesis, and Devising a Plan

This chapter will look at analyzing the behavior to start to develop an intervention plan. We will review criteria in order to objectively identify the behavior of concern and define it in objective terms. We will discuss guidelines for prioritizing the behaviors to be addressed and begin to look at general guidelines for intervention. Participants will complete page one of the Analyzing Behavior Worksheet (ABW) using the video case study.

2. Defining Your Hypothesis: What Is the Underlying Function of the Behavior?

In this chapter, we will formulate our hypothesis of the function(s) of the behavior, pulling together information from all of our previous courses. The more accurate our hypothesis is of the function the behavior serves, the more effective our interventions will be. We will identify sensory-based interventions and begin to identify an intervention plan of preventatives and skill development. We will also complete page two of the Analyzing Behavior Worksheet using the video case study.

3. Replacement Behaviors and Developing Our Intervention Plan

With our hypothesis in hand, we will develop our intervention plan, establishing our replacement behaviors and identifying preventatives that must be in place, skills that need to be developed, and reinforcements/consequences. Participants will complete page three of the Analyzing Behavior Worksheet (ABW) using the video case study.

This course, Is It Sensory or Is It Behavior? Part 1: Overview, is the first course in a four-part series geared toward providing the participant with the knowledge base to effectively answer this question. This overview looks at: problematic behaviors in clients that display both sensory and behavior components; theoretical foundations for behavior intervention and sensory integration; a format for tracking the sensory and behavior components; and basic evaluations common to behavioral analysis and sensory assessments.

This course provides an overview of the sensory systems and their neurological underpinnings and identifies the common behaviors seen within each. Using the Intervention for Challenging Behavior form, participants will learn to identify sensory-based behaviors, define sensory obtaining versus avoiding behaviors, and further identify if an intervention plan is needed. A case study will be used to clearly identify sensory-based behaviors. This course will look deeper into sensory processing disorder (SPD) taxonomy and research related to SPD, both in the general population and in those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Specific behavioral characteristics will be reviewed for modulation disorders and interventions introduced.

Communication challenges are a leading cause for behavioral difficulties.This course, Is It Sensory or Is It Behavior? Part 3: Social/Communication-Based Behaviors, provides an overview of the common behaviors associated with social/communication-based problems. Using the Intervention for Challenging Behavior (ICB) form, we will review obtaining and avoiding social/communication behaviors and begin to identify intervention strategies and considerations for each. Video case studies will be used for analyzing communication-based behaviors and to demonstrate the effectiveness of intervention strategies.
