Evaluation of a Performance Management Intervention to Increase Use of Trial-Based Functional Analyses by Clinicians in a Residential Setting for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities
We evaluated the effects of a performance management package on the implementation of trial-based functional analyses (TBFAs) by 6 clinical supervisors working in a large agency providing residential and day-program services to approximately 800 adolescents and adults with intellectual disabilities across 2 states using remote methods. Implementation of TBFAs increased for 5 of the 6 participants following introduction of the treatment package.
