Hespeaks in one-and two-word utterances and can say “book,” “food,”“more,” “hi,” and “drink.” However, hismainmode of communication is a picture-exchange system. Although Stephen hasdemonstrated that hereallyenjoys group activities, hehas lately begun bitinghis fellow students.Inaddition, he has begun pinching his teacher during one-on-one instruction. After he engages in one of these behaviors, he yells, “It hurts!” and starts laughing.A behavior analyst has conducted a structured interview as partof afunctional behavior assessment for Stephen. The teacher and parents’ responses indicate that the function of Stephen’s aggressive behaviors is to seekattention.Keeping this information in mind, theanalyst needstodirectlyassessStephen’sbehavior.Stephen’s generaleducation teacher, Ms. Gonzales,has recorded data regarding the frequency ofhis behaviors, but with inconsistency as she is the only adult inthe classroom.  The special education teacher, Mr. Kuchar, has not been able tospend muchtime in the inclusion classroom to support Stephen and Ms. Gonzales and toobserve Stephen’s behavior. Ms.Gonzales has requesteda meeting withthe Child Study Team to discuss thepossibility of changingStephen’splacement.Ms. Gonzales frequently communicates withStephen’s parents and has mentioned apossible placement change to them.  Stephen’s parents do not want him to be pulled out of the inclusion classroom even though otherstudents arebeing hurt.Currently, there are five other studentsin the inclusion classroom who receive special education servicesfor behavior issues.  Stephen’s behaviors are the most severe.  Ms. Gonzales does not feel she caneffectively meet Stephen’s needswith regards tohis behaviors and keep the otherstudents from beinghurt. Mr. Kuchar agrees that Stephen needsto be placed in a different classroom tobetterfit his needs; however, he has realizedthat there is inconsistent data collected thus far tosupport thisneed.Theschool principal alsoagrees with the suggestionof aplacement change and has asked Mr. Kuchar to set up a meeting to discussthiswithStephen’s parents.
