her behaviors that have been targeted for change?
When is it appropriate to attribute a person's diagnosed
condition as the function of his or her behavior in an FBA?
Why does the topography of the behavior reveal rather limited
information about the conditions that account for the behavior of concern?
Is it important to understand why a behavior occurs before
planning how it can be changed? Explain your answer.
