Identifying What Behavior to Track and How to Track It

Recording behavioral data is important to drive the decision-making process of effective interventions, analyze trends and behavior patterns, and make future recommendations accordingly. When choosing what behaviors to assign a data recording system, several components should be considered (i.e. inhibition to learning, independence, or socialization, as well as, age appropriateness of skill or potential prerequisites to skill). This webinar will not only discuss what to consider when deciding the target behavior, but will also discuss different data-recording systems and which one to use based on the that behavior.

Data; it can be quite a pain, especially if you take data on a minute, hour, or even a daily basis. So why do we need data again? Data helps us make informative decisions on initiating and continuing interventions for our clients. It allows us to be accountable to our consumers, helps drive away “fad” interventions with no evidence to support their claims, and it provides an ethical standard for our practice as professionals.

Deciding what to track and how to track it can be half the battle when planning for behavior change interventions. This behavioral brief, created by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and Master Trainer with QBS, will discuss how to decide on what behaviors to track and what data collection systems may be most accurate for that intended change.
