Assessment in Education

Behavior Imaging is researching how clinicians and educational professionals can make more informed decisions when it comes to the treatment of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders in special education classrooms through the use of educational studies in the following ways:

Feasibility of Conducting FBA’s in the Schools with Web-Based Video Recording Technology

Purpose of Current Study: To determine the efficacy of using web-based video recording technology to conduct functional behavioral assessments (FBA’s) in the schools for children with ASD or related disorders. Explore the cost-benefit (i.e., time and money) of using Behavior Imaging for FBA’s in the schools when compared to archival records of FBA’s conducted in […]

Current Innovations

The ability to start autism screening and diagnosis the same day – which saves an average of 6 to 9 months in earlier diagnosis and earlier intervention – sets the child miles ahead in development. Telehealth holds this same promise for a huge array of health and behavior issues where time is of the essence. […]

Problems We’re Tackling

The Critical Need For Telehealth Research There is a pressing need for diagnostic and intervention services to support the rapidly growing population of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network, 2009). Direct observation of the child remains the gold standard practice in diagnosis, assessment, and treatment planning for children with […]
