The work you have done during your internship at ACME has been recognized and now there are many agencies in your area looking for a comprehensive plan using behavior analytic principles and research methods. This is your chance to apply what you have learned about Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) to create an effective, evidence-based intervention for an organization.
The following organization has requested the creation of a behavior analytic program to assist with some concerns:
Stars ABA provides clinic-based, ABA interventions for children with autism. Stars uses discrete trial training to teach children skills and appropriate replacement behaviors. Stars also creates systematic behavior intervention plans to decrease interfering behaviors. The following are some of the issues Stars has encountered:
-Staff is not delivering reinforcers on a frequent basis when children are engaging in appropriate behavior.
-Staff is providing a lot of attention and reacting emotionally when children engage in inappropriate behavior.
-Many Stars’ staff arrive late for their scheduled shifts.
– Stars has experienced a high turnover rate. They have had 3 of 15 staff leave in the last 6 months.
After your initial evaluation, you have determined that the staff have many skill deficits in the areas of basic behavior analytic principles. Additionally, through observation, you notice that the amount of feedback delivered at all levels is very low and, when delivered, is not specific or timely. Stars wants to decrease the number of inappropriate behaviors exhibited by all clients and increase the mastery of target skills.
Your task is to create a plan to address the issues that Stars is having with regard to staff behavior. You should create a plan detailing a behavior analytic process and solution for Stars’ concerns. Include a brief explanation of the research strategies used to support your ideas. Your paper should contain all of the following and should be separated into sections covering each step:
