Frequency Data Collection
Submitted by: Autism Spectrum Disorder Team
Resource Category: Behavior Supports, Visual Supports. Sensory Supports, Social Skills Supports
Resource Description: Collect data on the frequency of the learner demonstrating the target goal/behavior/skill. When the behavior has been clearly defined and is observable, members of the team will need to collect data to determine how often (frequency) and for how long (duration) the behavior occurs before beginning an intervention. This is called baseline data collection and is important for establishing a measurable IEP goal or IFSP outcome.
