RBT Documentation and Reporting Test #3

0%

In a client's session notes, which of the following should not be written?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
RBTs should keep all documentation professional and objective when writing session notes. We can't be sure exactly what behaviors define a "poor mood," thus saying the learner was in a "bad mood" isn't objective.

Which of the following items should not be mentioned in the session notes?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Only objective observations should be included in session notes. Declaring a client "lazy" is not objective because "lazy" is a name rather than a behavior. Instead of offering subjective judgments, the therapist should focus on action verbs to convey what actually happened.

Why should RBTs maintain a professional and objective demeanor when preparing session notes and other service documentation?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Although session notes might help with reviewing a client's development, data and graphs are used to show the effectiveness of an intervention. Clients, client families, the BCBA, and service funders may examine session notes and other types of documentation. These people or organizations are exclusively interested in objective behavioral observations.

What should you include in your session notes?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
All of the alternatives listed above would be suitable to include in session notes.

In the session notes, an RBT is attempting to write on a client's performance on a skill development program. What would be the most effective way to describe the client's performance?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
BCBAs prioritize objective data over subjective assessments. "Extremely high" is subjective since one person's definition of "very high" may differ from another's. The same may be said for "did well" and "very driven" - we can't be sure what they mean because they're subjective.

Which of the following is a good example of a session's aim description?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Directly observable objects are included in objective descriptions. If physical hostility happened in this case, it would be proper to include it in the notes. However, calling a client "mad" is not a behavioral description. Angry is a term, not a personality trait. Action labels should be included in behaviors. Furthermore, claiming that a client is "over services" or "does not like this program" is subjective; we can't always tell. Instead, you may state, "I told the customer he needed to brush his teeth, and he answered, "I don't want to." This is a more impartial way of stating, "The client dislikes this program."

An RBT writes objective notes about the session's accomplishments and deficits, any problem behaviors that occurred, and any protocol adjustments that were performed in the last 10 minutes of a client's session. What does the RBT produce?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
After each session, you must take notes. Only objective information regarding the client's session should be included in the session notes.

How frequently should session notes be written?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Every session should have its own set of notes. If one RBT has a client from 2 to 4 PM and another from 4 to 6 PM, each therapist should keep track of his or her own sessions.

Which of the following statements about subjective assessments of a client's response is correct?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Subjective assessments are prone to being misinterpreted. When a client is described as "mad," it could suggest that they were aggressive, yelling, shouting, or simply entering other people's personal space. As a result, in our discipline, which aims to be a thorough, scientific investigation of human behavior, we do not prefer subjective judgements.

In the session notes, an RBT is attempting to explain a case of elopement. What words would you use to characterize the elopement?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
RBTs should focus on providing objective antecedents and effects of issue conduct when describing an instance. It is not behavioral to say that the behavior was "spontaneous" or a "automatic reflex." Not internal, imaginary variables, but environmental variables that correlate with behavior must be identified.

Mary, an adorable 4-year-old dimpled client, is being helped with an RBT. Mary and the RBT were playing with the dollhouse one session. Mary had a good time and requested that the RBT snap a picture with his personal phone. The RBT answers yes since Mary asked the right questions. "I adore my job," the RBT later wrote on her social media account after posting the photo. What could be the issue in this situation?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
RBTs are not allowed to be friends with clients on social media, much less share client-specific information on social media. RBTs should also avoid having photographs of clients on their personal phones, as this could be a breach of confidence.

Which of the following statements about session notes is false?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Although session notes might help with reviewing a client's development, data and graphs are used to show the effectiveness of an intervention. Clients, client families, the BCBA, and service funders may examine session notes and other types of documentation.
