Abstract

This paper describes the application of time-based lag sequential analysis to the functional assessment of challenging behaviours shown by people with severe learning disabilities. The potential uses of the approach are illustrated with regards to identifying: (1) aspects of the stimulus control of challenging behaviour; (2) antecedents to the occurrence of challenging behaviour; and (3) the environmental consequences of challenging behaviour. The uses and limitations of the approach are discussed.
