Cartoon character play activities program through functional assessment were planned based on the result. In order to prove the effectiveness of this research, three phases such as baseline, intervention, and follow-up were conducted using multiple baseline across subjects. As a result of this, It was turned out that cartoon character play activities through functional assessment has a significant influence on reducing maladaptive behavior of young children A, B, C with developmental delay.
