Workshop #W87
CE Offered: BACB
CANCELED: iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch Applications for Behavioral Assessment and Intervention
Saturday, May 26, 2012
8:00 AM–11:00 AM
204 (Convention Center)
Area: PRA/CBM; Domain: Service Delivery
CE Instructor: Paul Chrustowski, Ph.D.
PAUL CHRUSTOWSKI (Future Help Designs), CHRISTIAN MARCILLO (Future Help Designs), GLEN KONOPASKIE (Future Help Designs)
Description: Attendees will be introduced to two applications for the iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch platforms that will maximize efficiency in conducting behavioral assessments and interventions. iBAA (Behavioral Assessment Application) is an application for comprehensive behavioral assessment including qualitative assessment, cumulative frequencies, interval recording with peer referencing, and functional behavioral assessment (FBA). Features also allow for the assessment of the training or teaching environment and of trainer/teacher behavior. iBAA allows for discreet use and easy entry of behavioral data and generates meaningful reports, graphs, and tables, which can easily be exported and integrated into a psychological report. Keep In Mind is a companion application for assisting in implementation of behavior intervention plans. The application delivers fully customizable prompts to clients or to behavior plan implementers. A required response to the prompt provides feedback to the plan administrator/behavior analyst, which can be used as treatment compliance and intervention fidelity data. Devices will be available so that attendees can obtain hands on training in the use of these applications. Other advances in technology in development that may be of interest to behavior analysts will also be discussed.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this workshop, participants should be able to:

Access the applications and available resources to successfully and independently use them for practice

Use iBAA for qualitative assessment, cumulative behavioral frequencies, interval recording with and without peer referencing, functional behavioral assessment, and assessment of the learning environment

Generate and export reports of behavioral data

Use Keep In Mind to develop and deliver fully customizable prompts as part of a behavior intervention plan and access feedback data to assess treatment compliance and/or fidelity of implementation

Activities: Workshop trainers will demonstrate all aspects of the applications through didactic methods. Comparisons will be drawn to other existing behavioral assessment and intervention tools, highlighting how these applications maximize cost effectiveness and efficiency. Attendees will be able to practice with the devices under the tutelage of the trainers.
Audience: The target audience is behavioral practitioners with an interest in the use of technology to enhance their practice.
