NICE Guideline CG142 - Autism spectrum disorder in adults: diagnosis and management
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

A method for understanding the causes and consequences of behaviour and its relationship to particular stimuli, and the function of the behaviour. The function of a particular behaviour can be analysed by typically identifying (1) the precursor or trigger of the behaviour, (2) the behaviour itself, and (3) the consequence of the behaviour.
