Practical Functional Assessment(IISCA) vs. the Traditional Functional Analysis
We are stoked to be able to bring you this precursor episode of the Showdown.
We are stoked to be able to bring you this precursor episode of the Showdown. Our first topic will be the hotly debated practical functional assessment that includes the interview-informed, synthesized contingency analysis, or IISCA, vs the traditional functional analyses, or FA. We are covering this topic across a precursor episode and one round. As we stated in our introductory episode, good debates include definitions of any relevant terms to ensure that the debate is focused on the motion and not on parsing words. This debate requires slightly more than a few definitions so we created this, aptly named, precursor episode to include more detail. Enjoy learning a little more about the traditional functional analysis (FA) and about the practical functional assessment, which includes the interview-informed, synthesized contingency analysis (IISCA)! We put over 100 women hours over five months into this particular podcast and spent many a late night and early morning trying to fairly and accurately portray both sides and perfect the final product.
