BRIEF FUNCTIONAL ANALYSIS AND TREATMENT OF TANTRUMS
ASSOCIATED WITH TRANSITIONS IN PRESCHOOL CHILDREN
DAVID A. WILDER, LIYU CHEN, JULIE ATWELL,
JOSH PRITCHARD, AND PHILLIP WEINSTEIN
FLORIDA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
A brief functional analysis was used to examine the influence of termination of prechange
activities and initiation of postchange activities on tantrums exhibited by 2 preschool children.
For 1 participant, tantrums were maintained by access to certain (pretransition) activities. For
a 2nd participant, tantrums were maintained by avoidance of certain task initiations. Although
advance notice of an upcoming transition was ineffective, differential reinforcement of other
behavior plus extinction reduced tantrums for both participants.
