    Abstract

    Although low frequency challenging behaviour (that which occurs less than once a
    day) is common, very little research has been done into its analysis or treatment. It is suggested
    that the methods of analysing high frequency challenging behaviour, such as experimental
    functional analysis, will not be applicable with low frequency challenging behaviour. The use
    of correctional analysis of case records is considered as a method for generating hypotheses
    as to why a client is showing low frequency challenging behaviour. It is noted that using
    simple correlations is a method that can provide only limited information as to the relationship
    between a challenging behaviour and other events. A method that can reveal more about the
    temporal relationship between environmental events and challenging behaviour is time base
    lag sequential analysis. Three case studies are presented in which time base lag sequential
    analysis was used
