Symposium #204
International Symposium - ISEECI®: A Model for the Creation of Unique Systems in the Support of Behavioral Analytic Interventions
Sunday, May 28, 2006
3:00 PM–4:20 PM
International Ballroom North
Area: DDA; Domain: Service Delivery
Chair: Jorge Luis González-Quijano (Neurodesarrollo y Comunicación)
Abstract: The application of technology in different models of intervention has been used greatly on different areas like medicine, but psychology has not been impact as other areas of acknowledge. The application of the technology has been developed in two different ways. The first one is adopting hardware and software preexisting in the market to support the models of intervention. The second one is the creation of hardware and software designed especially for supporting a specific need of a project. This presentation is oriented in this way, trying to show the feasibility of creating specific systems avoiding the problems that present adaptations or adoptions of instrumental systems designed. The Integral System for the Evaluation of Educational and Clinical Interventions ISEECI®, is a software designed in Mexico to manage clinical and educational interventions giving support for the design, evaluation and application of rehabilitation programs based on Applied Behavior Analysis with a population with developmental disabilities, brain injury and behavioral resulting of the interventions. The purposes of this presentation is to share the experience of the way that ISEECI® was designed, and strengthening the creation of new and innovator systems on our field.
The Use of Technology to Establish Objectives of Intervention.

Abstract: To evaluate developmental disabilities is necessary apply psychological tests, check lists, functional analysis, etc. ISEECI helps through electronic formats with the integrations of these elements. The software has psychological tests that in a quantitative way evaluate neuropsychological factors. The software also has a tool to design functional analysis applying observational methodology with the purpose to identify related variables to the specific problem. In this sense direct observation manuals are created and are applied in a virtual video recorder, collecting the registries data using reliability formulas and later the data is automatically graphed by the software giving a report to help in the therapeutic decisions of the intervention. The software has different check lists to evaluate several areas such as academic, behavior, communication, recreational, self care, domestic activities, vocational activities, etc. Finally the software makes an integration of all the results of the evaluation with graphs and descriptions to generate a written report for the family and for the specialists involved in the case. The software has the capacity to create data bases with some information of the evaluation and later can be statistically treated.
The Use of Technology to Develop Analytic Behavior Interventions.

Abstract: SEECI has an Applied Behavior Analysis tool and was design with a principal page to help in the creation of different reinforcement programs, using strategies such as token economy, behavioral contract, differential reinforcement, etc. This tool has a spreadsheet to enter the collected data, date, reliability data, description of phases and observations and the data is automatically graphed. The software can show different types of graphs: multiple base line, single graph, different behaviors in one graph, etc. The software has a data analysis tool using the average of the different phases of the intervention to analyze level changes and the direction of the learning curve. ISEECI has the capacity to export the data to Excell or any other program that read text in order to make different type of data analysis.
The Use of Technology for the Creation and Evaluation of Individual Educational Plan (IEP).

Abstract: Mexico does not have as in USA the IDEA law that regulates the services in special education. Centro Educativo Neurocom is a school for children with developmental disabilities and behavioral problems that make an adaptation of the proposals of the Individual Educational Plan and Short Term Objectives integrating the formats into the software ISEECI. The software administrates the creation and application of the IEP and STO. In the educational program of SECCI there is a Behavior Analysis tool that evaluates the progress of the objectives proposed in the IEP and STO through the spreadsheet, automatic graphic and analysis of the different phases of the treatment. The software has a catalog with 80 thousand exercises (academic, learning, motor skills, etc.) divided in areas to help the teachers to administrate the application at the classroom. ISEECI also has a communication system that allows at the moment an interchange of information between the professionals involved in the case.
The Use of Technology to Train and Evaluate Professionals in Behavior Analysis.

Abstract: The specialized literature in Applied Behavior Analysis has shown a great number of strategies for the training and evaluation of professionals in the area, for example, the creation of direct observation instruments, the use of visual guides with professors and specialists, the use of bug in the ear with therapists, paper evaluations about the professionals achievement, the creation of social validity procedures, etc. The software ISEECI developed several tools of evaluation using and integrating the strategies mentioned above thus the software support de administration with the evaluation of the professionals with videotapes of their performance and applying the observational methodology for the feedback. The use of visual guides and bug in the ear are used to train the therapists. The software also has a performance evaluation where the software itself records the activities that the professionals have made when interacting with the software giving feedback to each professional comparing their performance with norms already established by the policies and procedures manual.
