  • Increasing the Post-Use Cleaning of Gym Equipment Using Prompts and
           Increased Access to Cleaning Materials
    • Authors: Ilexis Elba; Jonathan W. Ivy
      Abstract: Abstract A multiple treatment reversal design was used to evaluate the effects of three different antecedent-based interventions on the post-use cleaning of gym equipment. Unidentified students, faculty, staff, and community members participated in this study. An announcement, signs, and signs together with increased accessibility to cleaning materials were evaluated. The highest level of post-use cleaning was observed under the signs plus accessibility condition. These results indicate that the use of antecedent-based interventions may be a viable option for increasing cleaning behavior.

  • Task Interspersal Implementation Practices with Individuals with Autism
           Spectrum Disorder
    • Authors: Summer Bottini; Jennifer Vetter; Jennifer Gillis
      Abstract: Abstract Task interspersal is a teaching method frequently used with individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Although many different procedural variations of task interspersal have been reported in the literature, it is unclear how providers serving individuals with ASD implement task interspersal. The present study surveyed direct care providers to examine which variations of task interspersal they use most frequently, as well as how they choose a particular variation. Results revealed that many different procedural variations are used across providers. Provider discipline background appeared to be associated with differences in selection of specific procedural variations. Findings inform areas for further research as well as consideration of topics for discussion during training and/or supervision with employees and trainees. (1) Providers report frequently interspersing tasks of similar difficulty, despite research supporting the practice of interspersing tasks of varying difficulty. Service providers might consider primarily implementing maintenance among acquisition tasks when using task interspersal. (2) Due to potential problems associated with using the same reinforcement schedules/reinforcers for both tasks (e.g., satiation), providers and supervising BCBAs are encouraged to consider whether using different reinforcement schedules/reinforcers will enhance acquisition outcomes. (3) When selecting a procedural variation, providers reported relying on clinical judgment or guidelines from their organizations more frequently than directly contacting the current literature. It is important that organizations and supervisors provide clear guidelines and recommendations based on the most recent scientific literature and update these as new research is published. (4) Individualization of procedures based on specific client characteristics was found to be inconsistent. Supervisors are encouraged to discuss individualization practices for cases in which consistency of treatment across providers is preferred or necessary for maintenance of skills.

  • How to Identify Ethical Practices in Organizations Prior to Employment
    • Authors: Matthew T. Brodhead; Shawn P. Quigley; David J. Cox
      Abstract: Abstract Behavior analysts likely can evaluate multiple organizations prior to accepting a job due to recent increases in the number of organizations providing ABA services. We argue that evaluating the ethical values of an organization is paramount during the job search process. We provide strategies for evaluating the ethical values of an organization prior to employment and describe considerations from the pre-application process through contract negotiations. Ultimately, we add to the growing body of literature that provides guidance for common problems behavior analysts may face over the course of their careers.

  • The Dead Man Test: a Preliminary Experimental Analysis
    • Authors: Thomas S. Critchfield; Elva Z. H. Shue
      Abstract: Abstract Behavior analysts often invoke the “Dead Man Test” as a means of distinguishing behavior from other things, but the assumption underpinning this test, that behavior is absent in vitality-challenged individuals, lacks systematic empirical support. In a field experiment, three individuals who reasonably could be considered as deceased each were observed under three conditions in which behavior might have been observed. None was detected. These results are consistent with predictions derived from the Dead Man Test, although, due to limitations of the experiment, that foundational concept of behavioral measurement cannot yet be considered as validated.

  • Effects of Activation of Preferred Stimulus on Tummy Time Behavior of an
           Infant with Down Syndrome and Associated Hypotonia
    • Authors: E. Amanda Boutot; Samuel A. DiGangi
      Abstract: Abstract Infants with Down syndrome often have low muscle tone (hypotonia) and need activities designed to increase muscle tone (e.g., tummy time). However, no study has examined the effects of strategies designed to increase of tummy time for this population. The current study investigated activation of a preferred toy as a strategy to increase head lifting during tummy time for a 5-month-old with Down syndrome and associated hypotonia. The intervention was successful and is a promising early strategy for addressing hypotonia in infants with Down syndrome. • Infants with Down syndrome often have associated hypotonia, or poor muscle tone. • “Tummy time” is widely described as an important activity for motor development in early infancy. • Activating preferred stimuli during tummy time increased head lifting in an infant with Down syndrome and hypotonia. • Activation of a preferred stimulus is an easy intervention that parents can use to enhance tummy time.

  • Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Psychotropic Medications: Slipshod
           Training, Inconsistent Involvement, and Reason for Hope
    • Authors: Anita Li; Alan Poling
      Abstract: Abstract People with autism spectrum disorder often receive psychotropic medications and two drugs, risperidone and aripiprazole, are approved for treating “irritability” in this population. A number of authors have suggested that behavior analysts can contribute to the prudent use of such drugs, but little is known regarding Board Certified Behavior Analysts’ involvement in practices relevant to the use of psychotropic drugs. We e-mailed Board Certified Behavior Analysts an anonymous web-based survey regarding such practices. A majority of respondents work with individuals with autism spectrum disorder who take at least one psychotropic medication but respondents’ training relevant to psychotropic medications is inconsistent. Many report that their training is inadequate, they do not regularly work as part of interdisciplinary teams concerned with medication, and behavior-analytic interventions are not typically evaluated before drugs are prescribed. Nonetheless, the majority of respondents reported that medications sometimes produce beneficial effects. Those involved in training behavior analysts should consider the competencies needed for graduates to work effectively as members of teams concerned with the optimal use of medications and how to foster and assess those competencies. Behavior analysts should also work to develop and implement strategies that foster collaboration with psychiatrists and other physicians. • Psychotropic drugs are often prescribed for people with autism, and both risperidone and aripiprazole are approved for reducing “irritability,” which comprises self-injury, aggression, tantrums, and other challenging responses. • Respondents are not consistently involved in monitoring the effects of psychotropic drugs, which are often administered prior to evaluating an alternative, less restrictive, intervention. • Respondents are not trained consistently with respect to matters relevant to psychotropic drugs, and many apparently are not trained adequately. • People involved in training behavior analysts should consider the competencies needed for graduates to work effectively as members of teams concerned with the optimal use of medications and how to foster and assess those competencies. • Behavior analysts should also work to develop and implement strategies that foster collaboration with psychiatrists and other physicians.

  • The Use of the Performance Diagnostic Checklist-Human Services to Assess
           and Improve the Job Performance of Individuals with Intellectual
    • Authors: Madison Smith; David A. Wilder
      Abstract: Abstract The Performance Diagnostic Checklist-Human Services (PDC-HS) is an informant-based tool designed to identify the variables responsible for performance problems. To date, the PDC-HS has not been examined with individuals with intellectual disabilities. In the current study, two supervisors with intellectual disabilities completed the PDC-HS to assess the productivity of two supervisees with disabilities who performed a pricing task in a thrift store. The PDC-HS suggested that performance deficits were due to a lack of training; a PDC-HS-indicated intervention was effective to increase accurate pricing. • The PDC-HS is an informant-based tool designed to identify the variables responsible for employee performance problems in human service settings. • The PDC-HS can be completed by some individuals with intellectual disabilities in a supervisory position to identify the variables responsible for problematic job performance among their supervisees. • A PDC-HS indicated intervention was demonstrated to be effective to improve the job performance of individuals with disabilities. • The PDC-HS may be a useful tool to support performance improvement and job maintenance among individuals with intellectual disabilities.

  • The Student Should Help the Teacher: a View From 30 Years as an ABA
    • Authors: Brian K. Martens
      Abstract: Abstract I characterize my efforts to train graduate students in applied behavior analysis as a shaping process that involves closely monitoring their performance, providing numerous opportunities to respond in a variety of contexts, gradually shifting the reinforcement criterion, differentially reinforcing improvement, and providing instruction and error correction when necessary. In line with the old adage that “the student should help the teacher”, I also discuss how students are responsible in part for their own learning. To illustrate the importance of the student helping the teacher, I present a simple mathematical model that shows how two equally talented students can master skills at dramatically different rates by how frequently they respond to learning opportunities and apply what they learn.

  • An Approach to Cleanliness Training to Support Bathroom Hygiene among
           Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
    • Authors: Kristen L. Byra; Shannon White; Matthew Temple; Michael J. Cameron
      Abstract: The current investigation extends the findings of previous studies on the effects of simulation and correspondence training for teaching hygiene skills. Two male participants between the ages of 5 and 6 with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) were taught hygiene skills in a clinic setting. Both participants acquired the hygiene routine. Following instruction, the participants’ parents conducted probe sessions to assess generalization to the home environment. Generalization occurred for both participants. Moreover, a 6-month follow-up probe confirmed the maintenance of skills. This article provides utility to practitioners by providing a methodology for teaching hygiene after a bowel movement, demonstrating the generalization of skills from the clinic to the home, and providing a model for parent involvement.

  • Examining a Web-Based Procedure for Assessing Preference for Videos
    • Authors: Hugo Curiel; Emily S. L. Curiel; Anita Li; Neil Deochand; Alan Poling
      Abstract: A web-based program was developed to conduct brief multiple-stimulus without replacement preference assessments for videos (e.g., movies, cartoons, music videos). The preference assessment program was used with two populations: young adults with developmental disabilities and school-age children with emotional and behavioral needs. Stimulus preference hierarchies were identified for all participants, indicating that a web-based preference assessment procedure is an efficient procedure for isolating highly preferred videos, which might be useful as reinforcers in a variety of settings.

  • How Teaching Perspective Taking to Individuals with Autism Spectrum
           Disorders Affects Social Skills: Findings from Research and Suggestions
           for Practitioners
    • Authors: Lindsay C. Peters; Rachel H. Thompson
      Abstract: Behavior–analytic practitioners working with individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) may be approached to incorporate perspective taking into a client’s programming. Teaching perspective taking to individuals with ASDs has received attention in both the developmental psychology and, more recently, the behavior–analytic literature. The results of our review of the current evidence suggest that although perspective-taking repertoires believed to be related to social skills can be taught (false belief task performance, deictic frames), only directly teaching the social skills of interest (or applied perspective-taking skills) results in improvements in socially important behavior. The aim of this article is to provide practitioners with the current state of research on how teaching perspective taking affects social skills and to provide suggestions on how these findings might be incorporated into their practice.

  • Designing Receptive Language Programs: Pushing the Boundaries of Research
           and Practice
    • Authors: Vincent LaMarca; Jennifer LaMarca
      Abstract: Initial difficulty with receptive language is a stumbling block for some children with autism. Numerous strategies have been attempted over the years, and general guidelines for teaching receptive language have been published. But what to do when all else fails' This article reviews 21 strategies that have been effective for some children with autism. Although many of the strategies require further research, behavioral practitioners should consider implementation after careful review. The purpose of this article is to help behavior analysts in practice to categorize different teaching procedures for systematic review, recognize the conceptually systematic rationale behind each strategy, identify different client profiles that may make 1 strategy more effective than another, and create modifications to receptive language programming that remain grounded in research.

      Abstract: The Promoting the Emergence of Advanced Knowledge Relational Training System Generalization Module (PEAK–G; Dixon, 2014) was used within a community-based intensive behavioral intervention (IBI) program to enhance the generalized advanced language skills of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Four multiple-baseline, across-behaviors designs were used to assess the effectiveness of the PEAK–G “train and test” discrete trial training (DTT) method on directly trained and generalized language skills. After implementing PEAK–G, directly trained language skills increased for all participants, and generalization to test stimuli was observed for two participants, with some generalization observed for a third participant. These data suggest that PEAK–G may be a viable option for community-based practitioners to promote more advanced generalized language skills to children who have mastered early language skills.

  • The Promise of Accountable Care Organizations: “The Code,”
           Reimbursement, and an Ethical No-Win Situation for Behavior Analysts
    • Authors: Abraham Graber; Matthew O’Brien
      Abstract: Clinical ethics, with its emphasis on the actions of clinicians, risks overlooking the ways in which broader health-care structures influence the behavior of health-care providers. Analysis of a factual case study demonstrates that status quo reimbursement practices may place behavior analysts in a position where, no matter how they act, they risk acting unethically. By contrast, the reimbursement model set by accountable care organizations (ACOs), part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare), may offer a solution. However, making good on the promise of ACOs will require more resources than any individual behavior analyst possesses. In order to encourage institutional structures that facilitate ethical practice, behavior analysts’ professional organizations should engage in contemporary political discussions about the state of American health care.

  • No Less Worthy: Recommendations for Behavior Analysts Treating Adults with
           Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities with Dignity
    • Authors: Dennis H. Reid; Mary Rosswurm; David A. Rotholz
      Abstract: In this article, the authors offer recommendations for behavior analysts on how to treat adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) with dignity. Initially, the importance of treating adults with disabilities with dignity is emphasized in terms of the impact on people with IDD, their family members, behavior analysts and other service providers, and the behavior analysis field in general. The recommendations are based primarily on the authors’ professional and personal experiences along with similar experiences of others involved either personally or professionally in the disability field. The focus is on ways in which behavior analysts speak and behave that reflect dignity versus the lack thereof as perceived by others and, where relevant, consensus opinion within the professional field of IDD. Ways for behavior analysts to acquire and maintain awareness of manners of speaking and behaving that reflect dignity within the local settings in which they work are also provided.
