Autism ABA Datasheets:Duration 3.0
This updated Version: December 2014: in collaboration with DouglasH. McDonald, PhD, Consortium on Innovative Practices, Behavior andTechnical Consultant, USA.Like recording any Autism ABA data,recording Duration data manually is a very tedious, time consumingand complex activity. Instead of spending quality time with theirstudents, the therapists would have to keep an eye constantly onthis data recording.The complex tasks of keeping track of the totalduration, number of episodes, total duration in each behavior andcalculation of duration percentage for each behavior have all beenmade simpler with this Duration Data recording app.ABA DurationData Recording app does 5 basic things:1. The Main timer will keeptrack of the total duration of therapy in minutes and seconds.2.The Behavior timers can be pressed on and off to keep track oftotal duration of the behavior incrementally.3. As each time aBehavior timer is pressed, that event/episode is recordedincrementally. 4. Once the Stop button of the main timer ispressed, all the behavior timers are stopped automatically if theyare running, and the duration percentage calculated and displayedfor the behaviors.5. Data can be saved as an Image or as a CSV fileto be opened in Excel for further analysis;Key control points:1.Start button will not work if the main timer is displaying time.Pressing Reset button will rest all values to Zero and then theStart button can be pressed to start the timer.2. Unless all thevalues are set to zero the main timer will not start recording.3.Pressing any Behaviors button will not start it's timer unless themain Start button has been pressed and the main timer is ticking.4.Stopping the main timer by clicking on End button will stop allrunning behavior timers and duration percentage is calculated anddisplayed for each behavior. 5. Save button will not function whilethe main timer is running.6. Percentage is calculated based onBehavior total duration in SECONDS to total duration in SECONDS.Duration timing for each behavior is independent and all thebehavior timers can be run simultaneously.This app makes thecomplex data collection easier, convenient, simple, less timeconsuming and leave the therapists enough time to concentrate ontheir important role of interacting with kids with Autism.
