  • Comparing resetting to non-resetting DRO procedures to reduce stereotypy
           in a child with autism
    • Authors: Chana Gehrman; David A. Wilder, Alexander P. Forton, Kristin Albert
      Abstract: We compared a resetting to a non-resetting differential reinforcement of other behavior (DRO) procedure to reduce stereotypy exhibited by young boy with autism. During the resetting DRO, a reinforcer was delivered contingent upon the absence of stereotypy during the DRO interval. If stereotypy occurred, the DRO interval was immediately reset. The non-resetting DRO procedure was identical, except that contingent upon stereotypy, the DRO interval continued until it expired; a new DRO interval then began. Results indicate that the DRO procedures were equally effective to reduce stereotypy, but the participant preferred the resetting DRO procedure.

  • A comparison of existing and novel communication responses used during
           functional communication training
    • Authors: Ashley L. Matter; Jennifer R. Zarcone
      Abstract: Functional communication training (FCT) is a procedure used to teach a communicative response that results in the same reinforcer found to maintain problem behavior. Previous research has demonstrated that high levels of problem behavior may be observed during FCT when reinforcing an existing response due to a history of reinforcement for both existing responses and problem behavior. This study compared the effects of reinforcing an existing and novel communicative response during FCT on the rate of problem behavior for two children diagnosed with autism. Additionally, we assessed preference for either the existing or novel response using a concurrent schedules arrangement. The results demonstrated that the existing and novel communication responses were associated with low levels of problem behavior for both participants. Also, both participants preferred the novel response. We conclude with a discussion of practical applications of the analysis and avenues for future research.

  • Increasing on-task behavior of an adolescent with autism using momentary
           differential reinforcement
    • Authors: Joshua Jessel; Einar T. Ingvarsson, Ruth Whipple, Hillary Kirk
      Abstract: Compliance is often defined as the completion of a discrete task specified by a preceding instruction. However, compliance could also require the completion of a cluster of tasks, such as cleaning a room, getting ready for bed, or doing homework. We conducted this study to determine if a momentary differential reinforcement schedule would increase the on-task behavior of an adolescent with autism. The momentary differential reinforcement involved repeated momentary supervision checks, with tokens delivered for appropriate task engagement at that moment. The participant completed math worksheets and remained on task as the number of supervisions was faded from one every 30 s to one every 5 min.

  • Evaluation of an informational and behavior change program to increase
           students' self-reported energy conservation
    • Authors: Marcie N. Desrochers; Hilary Mosher
      Abstract: A systematic evaluation of a program, consisting of sustainability education, self-management strategies, and feedback, to decrease college students' energy use was conducted. During treatment, the experimental group showed increased self-reported energy savings relative to baseline levels and relative to the self-reported energy use of the comparison group who were shown only an instructional video on conserving energy. Treatment gains were maintained at a 2-week follow-up. More participants in the experimental group rated their experience as resulting in learning something new about green issues and influencing their pro-environmental behavior compared to the comparison group. This study suggests that further research is warranted, specifically using these strategies in real-life situations.

  • Using video modeling to teach siblings of children with autism how to
           prompt and reinforce appropriate play
    • Authors: Elanor R. Neff; Alison M. Betz, Valdeep Saini, Elizabeth Henry
      Abstract: This study investigated the use of video models to teach typically developing children how to prompt and reinforce appropriate play behavior during games with their sibling with autism. With 3 sibling dyads, we extended research on cooperative sibling play by examining video modeling as the sole intervention to facilitate appropriate play between siblings in the absence of specific reinforcement for skills learned in the video model. Video models included brief clips of adults playing games with the child with autism and demonstrating how to prompt and reinforce play behavior. Results indicated that for 2 of the 3 sibling dyads video modeling alone was sufficient to teach prompts and appropriate delivery of reinforcement. An increase in on-task activity engagement was also observed for both siblings with autism across all 3 dyads.

  • Using differential reinforcement of a discard response to treat pica
    • Authors: Sarah K. Slocum; Lindsay R. Mehrkam, Kerri P. Peters, Timothy R. Vollmer
      Abstract: Previous research on the treatment of pica (i.e., the ingestion of inedible objects) is limited compared to research on the treatment of other types of severe problem behavior. This study involved the use of differential reinforcement of alternative behavior, with a discard response as the alternative behavior, to treat pica presented by a 13-year-old girl with an autism spectrum disorder. We extended previous research by thinning the schedule of reinforcement for the alternative response. Substantial reductions in pica were obtained. Limitations and future directions in the treatment of pica are discussed.

  • A simple intervention for stereotypical engagement with an augmentative
           alternative communicative device
    • Authors: Jennifer L. Cook; John T. Rapp, Carla Burji, Catherine McHugh, Raluca Nuta
      Abstract: Although electronic devices may enhance the effectiveness of some behavioral interventions for children with autism spectrum disorders, such devices may also give rise to problem behavior such as repetitious button pressing (i.e., object stereotypy). Results of this study showed that a child with autism spectrum disorder only displayed high levels of object stereotypy on an iPad™ when presses generated auditory output. Subsequently, results showed that when the participant used the iPad™ without auditory output, his stereotypical behavior decreased and his manding for various items simultaneously increased.

  • Treatment of self-injurious behavior using differential punishment of high
           rates of behavior (DPH)
    • Authors: Christopher J. Manente; Robert H. LaRue
      Abstract: The purpose of the current investigation was to explore the effectiveness of differential punishment of high rates of behavior (DPH) to treat the severe self-injury of a 28-year-old man with autism in an adult day program setting. DPH procedures involve the use of an established criterion related to a rate of responding within some time interval at which a punisher is delivered. The implementation of DPH in this study resulted in a substantial long-term reduction of severe self-injurious behavior. These findings are significant in that they provide a model for the design and implementation of punishment procedures that can be adopted in applied settings where staff resources are limited. The results of this study have implications for the treatment of severe problem behavior among individuals with autism across settings and age groups.

  • Evaluating the efficacy of the Headsprout© reading program with children
           who have spent time in care
    • Authors: Catherine Storey; Claire McDowell, Julian C. Leslie
      Abstract: This study investigated whether Headsprout©, an internet-based phonics program designed on behavioral principles, is an effective supplementary tool to improve literacy skills of children who have spent time in care and are at risk of reading failure. Participants were 8 children (aged 5 to 10) who had spent over 3 years in care and were fully adopted at the time of the study. Participants' literacy skills were assessed prior to intervention using 2 standardized reading attainment tests. Participants were then randomly assigned to either treatment or a waiting list comparison group. There were 2 Headsprout© treatments, but all participants in the treatment group completed 1 HeadsproutStartCopText© lesson 4 times per week, under the supervision of the first author, while participants in the comparison group interacted with the first author 4 times per week engaging in nonliteracy-based computer activities. Results from 2 standardized reading attainment tests showed an improvement in word recognition age and oral reading fluency for the HeadsproutStartCopText© learners but scores either remained the same or decreased over a 4-month period for participants in the comparison group. The findings support the wider use of HeadsproutStartCopText© with at-risk children though more research is clearly warranted at this time.

  • The effects of an escape extinction procedure using protective equipment
           on self-injurious behavior
    • Authors: Lisa Tereshko; Donn Sottolano
      Abstract: While escape extinction has shown to be successful in reducing escape maintained self-injurious behavior, there is limited research on the use of escape extinction with protective equipment for escape maintained self-injurious behavior. The purpose of this investigation was to examine the effects of an escape extinction procedure paired with the application of protective equipment on the escape maintained self-injurious behavior of an 8-year-old boy diagnosed with autism. Results suggested that escape extinction using protective equipment for safety is an effective approach to decrease head hitting. Rates of self-injurious behavior during an 18-month follow-up were comparable to rates observed in the final intervention phase.

  • Effects of response independent delivery of preferred items and the
           high-probability instructional sequence on compliance
    • Authors: Joshua Lipschultz; David A. Wilder, Amy Enderli
      Abstract: The use of the high-probability (high-p) instructional sequence to increase compliance, which includes issuing a series of instructions with which a participant is likely to comply immediately before issuing a low-probability instruction, has received mixed support in the literature. Previous research has suggested that the delivery of response independent reinforcement may be as effective to increase compliance, at least for some types of instructions. In this study, we examined the effects of response independent reinforcement and the high-p sequence on compliance with two types of instructions with two young children. Results show that neither procedure was effective for increasing compliance for either type of instruction; however, contingent access to a high preference item increased compliance. Results are discussed in terms of the conditions under which response independent delivery of high-preference items and the high-p instructional sequence might be effective to increase compliance.

  • Developing and demonstrating inhibitory stimulus control over repetitive
    • Authors: Jeffrey H. Tiger; Brittany C. Wierzba, Wayne W. Fisher, Brittany B. Benitez
      Abstract: Developing inhibitory stimulus control over repetitive behavior minimizes the social and learning disruptions caused by this behavior while allowing individuals to continue to access this source of reinforcement at nonproblematic times. These procedures involve allowing repetitive behaviors to occur in some stimulus conditions (S+) and blocking the repetitive behavior in order to disrupt the response–reinforcer relation in other stimulus conditions (S-) such that the onset of the S- period results in rapid and sustained reductions in repetitive behavior. However, the demonstration of stimulus control exerted by the S- has often been confounded with participants' exposure to programmed reductive contingencies (i.e., behavior is reduced due to direct contact with contingencies rather than the programmed antecedent stimuli). The current study both developed and demonstrated the suppressive effects of S- presentation upon repetitive behavior with two children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders. These demonstration techniques involved (a) introducing the S- into novel environments without the programmed contingencies that we used to establish discriminative control, (b) evaluating the reductive effects of programmed contingencies with and without the associated discriminative stimuli, and (c) evaluating latencies to the onset of repetitive behavior given S+ and S- presentations.

  • An investigation of the matrix training approach to teach social play
    • Authors: Emily R. Wilson; Byron Wine, Katie Fitterer
      Abstract: Matrix training is a conceptual model inspired by the generative learning approach to program development. This investigation used matrix training to facilitate a generative repertoire of two-component solitary and social play skills in a child diagnosed with autism and cerebral palsy. Play-related actions and corresponding toys were aligned on perpendicular axes of a standard matrix. The learner was trained on the skills that intersected along the diagonal of the matrix. The learner acquired both appropriate solitary and social play skills. The participant also began requesting items from a peer despite not having been directly trained to do so. The untrained combinations accounted for 86% of the matrix responses acquired.

  • A comparison of computer-assisted and therapist-led instruction for
           children with autism spectrum disorder
    • Authors: Brittany A. LeBlanc; Tiffany Kodak, Tom Cariveau, Vincent Campbell
      Abstract: The current investigation applied a model of assessment-based instruction to an evaluation of the efficacy and efficiency of computer-assisted and therapist-led instruction on skill acquisition for 3 participants with autism spectrum disorder. We also evaluated the participant's attending during instruction and the social validity of each format of instruction. The results showed that computer-assisted instruction was most efficient for 2 of the 3 participants, although attending varied across instructional formats. In addition, the social validity of instructional formats varied across participants.

  • Examination of variables that affect the efficacy of instructive feedback
    • Authors: Shaji S. Haq; Patricia K. Zemantic, Tiffany Kodak, Brittany LeBlanc, Traci E. Ruppert
      Abstract: Instructive feedback is a procedure in which additional, nontarget stimuli are presented during instructional trials for students with a wide array of disabilities. This preliminary investigation examined whether participant behavior during instructive feedback, including attending and echoic behavior, altered the efficacy of instructive feedback for 2 children with autism. Results showed that participant behavior during instructive feedback related to training outcomes for both participants and treatment modifications based on participant behavior influenced acquisition. Future directions of research and implications for practice are discussed.

      Abstract: Previous researchers have documented the positive effects achieved by trained clinicians providing behavioral interventions for pediatric feeding disorders; however, few have evaluated the maintenance of those treatments when subsequently implemented by primary caregivers. Further, the majority of previous caregiver training research has relied on the use of multicomponent training packages making it difficult to determine which components are necessary for success. The purpose of the current investigation was to evaluate the effects of instructions and feedback on caregivers' implementation of feeding protocols in a home setting. Results of the current study suggest that feedback may be the most effective training component in training packages designed to teach caregivers to implement an effective feeding protocol. Potential concomitant changes in child behavior are also discussed.
