A Comparison of Verbal and Standard Selection-Based Preferences Using the Multiple Stimulus Without Replacement Method for Children with Developmental Disabilities
Since DeLeon and Iwata (1996) published their seminal study on multiple stimulus preference assessments, the research surrounding preference assessments utilizing multiple stimuli has grown immensely. This has led to ...
Training Caregivers to Implement a Structured Meal Protocol to Decrease Food Selectivity Among Young Children with Autism
This study evaluated a method of training caregivers to implement the Structured Meal protocol to treat children with autism who exhibit food selectivity. A treatment package consisting of written instructions and video ...
Using Discrimination Training to Establish Conditioned Reinforcers: A Replication and Test of Maintenance
A stimulus becomes a conditioned reinforcer when it acquires reinforcing properties by virtue of being paired with a primary reinforcer. Researchers have evaluated different methods to condition reinforcers for children ...
An Evaluation of Static versus Dynamic Instructional Stimuli on Generalization of Action Tacts
Researchers have noted that children with autism have difficulty generalizing responses to stimuli outside of those used in training. Some studies have analyzed ways to promote generalization such as using concurrent ...
A Quantitative Analysis of Errors during Conditional Discriminations: Changing Sample-Stimuli Disparity in Delayed Matching-To-Sample Task with Children Diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Conditional discrimination skill is foundational in teaching many other functional skills in children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and error occur during training. Antecedent- and consequence-based ...
Discrimination Training to Produce Emergent Relations of Pre-Algebraic Math Skills
Individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often have deficits with respect to generalization of skills. Procedures designed to induce stimulus equivalence have been shown to promote generalization. This ...
