ABC Behavior Assessment
By Reticent Arts
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This app is intended for people who are new to behavior analysis, including veterinarians, animal behavior consultants and trainers, zoo keepers, and even parents and teachers. It is designed to help you take the first step in solving problem behaviors, which is to describe what the learner actually does and to place that behavior in a context, not inside the animal. Behavior does not occur in a vacuum or spray out of learners haphazardly. There are always conditions on which behavior depends. Therefore, changing conditions necessarily changes behavior. This is good news because we do have direct control over many of the conditions in which learners behave.
The app guides you through the process of developing hypotheses about the functional relations among antecedents, behaviors and consequences – the behavior ABCs. The following key questions are the heart of this app and can help focus your observations on the ABCs:
* What does the problem look like in terms of actual behavior, i.e., what do you see?
* What does the learner get, or get away from, by emitting this behavior?
* Under what conditions does the learner do this behavior, i.e., what events predict it?
* What do you want the learner to do instead?

Please allow for incremental save for data
Is there a way to save the information
one has entered, incrementally, without
having to start all over each time there
is an interruption, or the phone rings,
or another application is used briefly?
Each time I have started entering
information and switched applications
briefly, I have lost all data entered and
have had to start all over again.
Can this be changed, such that there's
a way to save the information entered
at each "page" so it's not lost?? This
change would greatly improve this
app. Thank You!
Gave away my money
This apps is a rip off. You have to start over ever time you attempt to make change. Need to be revised. Can I get my money back?
Worst application I have ever downloaded. I am a BCBA-D and teach others how to actually do FBAs and this app over simplifies FBAs and gives behavior analysis a bad name.
