Behavior Modification deals with analysing and modifying human behaviour.

At Khushi, we seek to increase desirable behaviour and decrease undesirable behaviour. This is done though a functional assessment – which analyses the reason for the root cause for the behaviour. Functional Assessment gathers information about the antecedent events and reinforcing consequences for a behavioural pattern.


FUNCTIONS OF PROBLEM BEHAVIOR

  1. Self stimulatory
  2. Attention seeking
  3. For tangible items
  4. Avoidance behavior
  5. Behavior because of medical reasons

DIMENSIONS OF BEHAVIOR

  1. Frequency (how often it occurs)
  2. Duration (how long does it occurs)
  3. Intensity

CONDUCTING A FUNCTIONAL ASSESSMENT

  1. Define behavior
  2. Identify antecedents
  3. Identify consequences
  4. Make a hypothesis
  5. On the basis of hypothesis decide treatment by modulating antecedents/consequences
  6. Confirm hypothesis
  7. Deduct a treatment that is functionally equivalent to the problem behavior

We also use the following behavioural principles to teach new things to a child. Reinforcement, Extinction, Punishment, Stimulus Control, Shaping, Prompting and Transfer of Stimulus Control, Chaining, Differential Reinforcement, and Antecedent Control Procedures and more.
