ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of the application of the individualized behavioral intervention and functional curriculum on problem behaviors and functional skills of a student with both visual impairment and mental retardation. The subject was a male student aged 10.2 years old who studies in XX School for the Blind. A collaborative team designed and implemented communication-based behavioral intervention and functional curriculum activities. The communication-based behavioral intervention was incorporated into the individualized functional curriculum activities. After the 11-week intervention, data showed that the interventions reduced problem behaviors and increased specific functional skills in school settings. Social validation data supported the efficacy of the interventions. Additional research is needed to design home- or community-based functional curriculum activities.
