In Dr. Bloom’s original webinar, she introduced us to trial-based functional analysis in schools. Dr. Bloom described the conditions under which a trial-based FA is and is not appropriate, how to conduct FA trials, how to collect, graph, and analyze trial-based FA data and discuss strategies for successfully using trial- based FA in school settings. In this update to the original webinar Dr. Bloom will review recent advances in trial-based functional analyses in regular ed and special education settings (current research in trial-based functional analysis), and examines conceptual, ethical, procedural, and competency issues related to its use. Current research on training parents and other professionals to use trial-based functional analysis will be reviewed. Data analysis and a new approach that uses signal detection theory to identify thresholds for determination of function will be presented.
