Abstract: These series of papers will cover issues involving key points in working with persons with acquired brain injuries (ABI), data collection, and display systems. The first paper will highlight key issues in working with adults with brain injury including the unique set of issues with programming, development of care plans, and staff training. The presentation of brain injury varies vastly from individual to individual. Educating staff members on brain injury and the different ways it may present in adults and increases the understanding of each individual will be discussed. The second paper will focus on data systems. The lack of an efficient data analysis program can adversely impact clients and all consumers of the data (behavior analysts, behavior specialists, clinicians, case managers, guardians, etc.). Thus, a data analysis program that is both efficient and user-friendly is critical to the time management of behavior analysts. A data analysis program will be presented that can speed analysis and data entry. The third paper will focus on issues involved with graphing data. Behavior analysts use data in order to make evidence-based treatment decisions. This presentation will demonstrate several ways to graph data in order to derive the most useful information. Both behavioral deceleration and acquisition graphs will be discussed. Data sets will be graphed in different ways to demonstrate utility of visual presentation. Time and frequency, cumulative frequency, averaging, and log and celeration graphing displays will be discussed.
