client for which you will conduct a functional behavioral assessment.
Describe the clients’ age, gender, socioeconomic status, race,
disability, work/home life/environment, preferences, presenting problem,
target behavior(s), available data, etc.). Discuss the importance of
including a thorough description of the target behavior in observable
and measurable terms, along with relevant environmental factors, medical
data, client preferences, motivating operations, cultural factors, etc.
when conducting an ethical and complete client assessment. Conclude
with the selection of at least one direct and one indirect method of
assessment based on your preliminary assessment of the client, and
provide a rationale or justification for each method which you select.
a brief description of at least one test of non-verbal intelligence
(make sure it is unique and has not yet been mentioned by your peers),
as well as one test to assess a client who has limited cognitive
ability, but is verbal (again, be sure it is unique and not yet
mentioned by your peers). What are the reliability and validity ratings
of these tests, and why are this important statistics to explore when
considering the best test to use?
