Abstract

Call, Wacker, Ringdahl, and Boelter (2005) conducted an analysis in which a single-antecedent condition was compared to a multiple-antecedent condition. The present study extended Call et al. by conducting a structured descriptive assessment (SDA) to identify the antecedent variables most associated with problem behavior in a student with traumatic brain injury and intellectual disabilities. Results indicated that the SDA was effective in identifying relevant antecedent variables that led to the development of an effective intervention in the classroom.
