Abstract

In this paper, we describe a framework for integrating an understanding of an individual's psychiatric diagnosis into a functional assessment of problem behavior. An interdisciplinary approach that considers both behavioral perspectives and psychiatric perspectives is necessary for supporting individuals with developmental disabilities and mental illness. A case report is presented, along with implications of this model for service providers.
