Few studies have connected functional analysis (FA) outcomes to function-based interventions for elopement. We conducted 2 trial-based FAs of the elopement of a 10-year-old boy diagnosed with autism. During the first, latency-to-elopement was the primary dependent variable. During the second, we tracked the occurrence/nonoccurrence of elopement in a 2-component compound-schedules preparation. Outcomes of both FAs indicated identical functions and informed an effective intervention.
