  • Maintaining Staff Performance Following a Training Intervention:
           Suggestions from a 30-Year Case Example
    • Authors: Dennis H. Reid; Marsha B. Parsons; Joyce M. Jensen
      Pages: 12 - 21
      Abstract: Abstract A frequent challenge encountered by behavior analysts in human service agencies is maintaining effects of their training interventions with agency staff. A case example is provided to illustrate how effects of a staff training intervention initiated by a behavior analyst maintained for an extended period in a center-based program for adolescents and adults with severe disabilities. The process involved the behavior analyst working closely with the program supervisor and a professional staff member in a collaborative team approach to increase involvement of center participants in functional (vs. nonfunctional) educational tasks. Initially, the team jointly developed an intervention to increase staffs’ provision of functional tasks. The behavior analyst subsequently worked with the team members regarding how to implement the intervention by training their staff and providing feedback. The two team members then continued providing feedback during their respective supervisor tenures without continued presence of the behavior analyst. Results indicated that initial increases in participant involvement in functional tasks maintained during follow-up observations encompassing 30 years. Normative comparisons also showed that the levels were well above the level of functional task involvement in other center-based programs across that time period. Results are discussed regarding recommendations for behavior analysts to use a collaborative team approach with supervisors indigenous to an agency to help maintain staff behavior targeted for change by the behavior analysts.

  • Blurred Lines: Ethical Implications of Social Media for Behavior Analysts
    • Authors: Patrick N. O’Leary; Megan M. Miller; Melissa L. Olive; Amanda N. Kelly
      Pages: 45 - 51
      Abstract: Abstract Social networking has a long list of advantages: it enables access to a large group of people that would otherwise not be geographically convenient or possible to connect with; it reaches several different generations, particularly younger ones, which are not typically involved in discussion of current events; and these sites allow a cost effective, immediate, and interactive way to engage with others. With the vast number of individuals who use social media sites as a way to connect with others, it may not be possible to completely abstain from discussions and interactions on social media that pertain to our professional practice. This is all the more reason that behavior analysts attend to the contingencies specific to these tools. This paper discusses potential ethical situations that may arise and offers a review of the Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB) guidelines pertaining to social networking, as well as provides suggestions for avoiding or resolving potential violations relating to online social behavior.

  • Best Practices in Utilizing the Changing Criterion Design
    • Authors: Liesa A. Klein; Daniel Houlihan; James L. Vincent; Carlos J. Panahon
      Pages: 52 - 61
      Abstract: Abstract The changing criterion design (CCD) has been a recognized format of single-case research for four decades. Published examples of the CCD have been limited and the structure of the design used in the literature has varied to a degree that might engender confusion. This review examines the structure of CCD studies published to date to identify prior implementation practices and identify best practices for future use.

  • A Comparison of Procedures for Teaching Receptive Labeling of Sight Words
           to a Child with Autism Spectrum Disorder
    • Authors: Laura L. Grow; Rebecca Van Der Hijde
      Pages: 62 - 66
      Abstract: Abstract We compared the effectiveness and efficiency of a modified simple-conditional method and the conditional-only method for teaching receptive labeling of sight words. Jon, a 6-year-old boy diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, participated. Across three comparative evaluations, the conditional-only method resulted in fewer sessions to mastery than a modified simple-conditional method. Textual responses emerged after Jon mastered the sight words as receptive labels. Practitioners should avoid teaching component simple discriminations as a strategy for facilitating conditional discrimination training in clinical practice.

  • Evaluating the Ability of the PBS Children’s Show Daniel Tiger’s
           Neighborhood to Teach Skills to Two Young Children with Autism Spectrum
    • Authors: Wesley H. Dotson; Eric E Rasmussen; Autumn Shafer; Malinda Colwell; Rebecca L. Densley; Adam T. Brewer; Marisol C. Alonzo; Laura A. Martinez
      Pages: 67 - 71
      Abstract: Abstract Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is a children’s television show incorporating many elements of video modeling, an intervention that can teach skills to children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This study evaluated the impact of watching Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood episodes on the accurate performance of trying new foods and stopping play politely with two five-year-old children with ASD. Both children showed improved performance of skills only following exposure to episodes of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, suggesting that watching episodes can help children with ASD learn specific skills.

  • Using Video Modeling with Voice-over Instruction to Train Public School
           Staff to Implement a Preference Assessment
    • Authors: Gina M. Delli Bovi; Jason C. Vladescu; Ruth M. DeBar; Regina A. Carroll; Randi A. Sarokoff
      Pages: 72 - 76
      Abstract: Abstract The identification of putative reinforcers is a critical component of programming for individuals with disabilities. A multiple stimulus without replacement preference assessment is one option for identifying putative reinforcers; however, staff must be trained on the steps necessary to conduct the assessment for it to be useful in practice. This study examined the effectiveness of using video modeling with voice-over instruction (VMVO) to train two public school staff to conduct this assessment. Results demonstrate that VMVO was effective in training, producing generalized responding, maintenance, and high social validity ratings.

  • Learner Preference Between Massed- and Alternating-Trial Sequencing when
           Teaching Stimulus Relations to Children with Autism
    • Authors: Paulo Guilhardi; Jennifer Smith; Camille Rivera; Robert K. Ross
      Pages: 77 - 82
      Abstract: Abstract Two children with autism were assessed for preference between intersession distribution of mastered and unknown instructional trials on a computerized matching-to-sample task consisting of 12 total learning opportunities. Choice responses yielded presentation of either massed-trial sequencing (six unknown/six mastered stimuli relations or vice-versa) or alternating-trial sequencing delivery (alternation of unknown and mastered stimuli relations) followed by reinforcement for correct responses. An extinction condition served as an experimental control. Both children demonstrated a preference for the alternating-trial sequencing condition, and implications for instructional programming and possible effects to delays to higher rates of reinforcement are discussed.

  • Effects of Antecedent Manipulations and Social Reinforcement to Increase
           Lateral Positioning in a Premature Infant with Obstructive Sleep Apnea
    • Authors: Harry Voulgarakis; Solandy Forte; Cheryl Giacomelli; Debra Bendell-Estroff; Henry Krous
      Pages: 83 - 86
      Abstract: Abstract Recent research suggests supine positioning for sleeping infants is the safest position to prevent breathing related difficulties; however doing so can significantly increase obstruction in apneic infants resulting in decreased sleep quality. We implemented a multi-component treatment package compromised of antecedent interventions and parent-mediated social reinforcement to increase lateral positioning in a premature infant with obstructive sleep apnea. Results indicate that the intervention increased lateral positioning in the participant by over 80 % in the final phase of the study, indicating efficacy of the intervention. Limitations and suggestions for future research are discussed.

  • Reduction of Rapid Eating in an Adolescent Female with Autism
    • Authors: Scott V. Page; Kristin Griffith; Becky Penrod
      Pages: 87 - 91
      Abstract: Abstract Rapid eating, a potentially dangerous and socially inappropriate behavior, has received relatively little attention in the literature. This study sought to extend the research in this area by further evaluating the effectiveness of a vibrating pager combined with a rule for increasing inter-response time between bites in one adolescent female diagnosed with autism. Results indicated that inter-response time increased from baseline only after a vocal prompt to “wait” was introduced across clinic and home settings. Implications for promoting autonomy in individuals with developmental disabilities are discussed. This antecedent-based intervention can easily be generalized to caregivers The unobtrusive nature of the intervention allows for implementation in inclusive settings There are implications for promoting social skills in naturalistic environments The intervention can promote independence through teaching self-management

  • Training Staff to Avoid Problem Behavior Related to Restricting Access to

    • Authors: Duncan Pritchard; Marguerite Hoerger; Heather Penney; Llio Eiri; Lorraine Hellawell; Simon Fothergill; F. Charles Mace
      Pages: 92 - 95
      Abstract: Abstract Some training programs for staff working with individuals with intellectual disabilities fail to equip staff with the practical skills necessary to prevent behavioral episodes. The current research describes the results of a staff training program that, following traditional didactic training, used a card game followed by role-play training to increase staff competence in managing problem behavior. The card game and role-play training was based on behavioral episodes that had occurred previously in the research setting. Post-training observations showed that treatment integrity of trained staff improved.

  • Some Tools for Carrying Out a Proposed Process for Supervising Experience
           Hours for Aspiring Board Certified Behavior Analysts ®
    • Authors: Katie Lynn Garza; Heather M. McGee; Yannick A. Schenk; Rebecca R. Wiskirchen
      Abstract: Abstract While task clarification, goal setting, feedback, and behavioral skills training (BST) are well-supported methods for performance improvement, there is no standardized approach to supervising aspiring Board Certified Behavior Analysts® (BCBAs®) that specifies how such practices should be used within a comprehensive supervision system, namely for supervising those who are still accruing experience hours for the purpose of becoming board certified. This article outlines a systematic approach to BCBA supervision and provides a set of tools that supervisors can use to ensure that they are engaging in empirically based supervision practices.

  • Video Modeling Training Effects on Types of Attention Delivered by
           Educational Care-Providers
    • Authors: Traci A. Taber; Nathan Lambright; James K. Luiselli
      Abstract: Abstract We evaluated the effects of abbreviated (i.e., one-session) video modeling on delivery of student-preferred attention by educational care-providers. The video depicted a novel care-provider interacting with and delivering attention to the student. Within a concurrent multiple baseline design, video modeling increased delivery of the targeted attention for all participants as well as their delivery of another type of attention that was not trained although these effects were variable within and between care-providers. We discuss the clinical and training implications from these findings.

  • Effects of Reinforcer Magnitude and Quality on Preference for
           Response-Reinforcer Arrangements in Young Children with Autism
    • Authors: John C. Ward-Horner; Amy O. Muehlberger; Joseph Vedora; Robert K. Ross
      Abstract: Abstract The present study evaluated the effects of reinforcer magnitude and quality on preference for continuous and discontinuous arrangements. Two preschool children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) participated in the study. Both participants initially preferred a discontinuous arrangement when choice options included the same quality and magnitude reinforcers; however, magnitude and quality manipulations resulted in a change in preference for continuous arrangements.

  • A Survey-Based Method to Evaluate Optimal Treatment Selection for
           Escape-Maintained Problem Behavior
    • Authors: Valdeep Saini; Alison M. Betz; Meagan K. Gregory; Yanerys Leon; Nathalie Fernandez
      Abstract: Abstract Geiger, Carr, and LeBlanc (2010) developed a decision-making model for escape-maintained problem behavior that could be used to guide the course of treatment selection. We used a digital survey to evaluate the model’s potential usefulness. We presented novice and expert practitioners’ written hypothetical scenarios and asked them to determine the optimal treatment in a given situation. Some participants were given the model, whereas others were instructed to use their best clinical judgment. Using logistic regression analyses, the general findings for our scenarios were the following: (a) experts without the aid of a decision model had better odds of selecting the optimal treatment than novices without the decision model, (b) experts with the decision model did not have greater odds of selecting optimal treatment than experts without the model, and (c) novices with the decision model did not have better odds of selecting the optimal treatment than novices without the decision model.

Three emotions—happiness, frustration and sadness/pain—were chosen for this purpose. Treatment consisted of verbal prompting and reinforcement of empathetic responses. Four experimenter-defined categories with discriminative stimuli were used for each emotion. The multiple exemplar component of the model consisted of teaching responses in the presence of several discriminative stimuli drawn from the predefined categories for each emotion delivered by two persons across two environments. Results were evaluated using a multiple baseline design across behaviours and indicate a systematic increase in responses with the introduction of treatment across each category for both participants. Generalization of responses from training to non-training stimuli in both participants was observed during probe trials and was maintained during follow-up probes.

  • A Comparison of Math Cover, Copy, Compare Intervention Procedures for
           Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
    • Authors: Reeva C. Morton; Daniel L. Gadke
      Abstract: Abstract Cover, Copy, Compare (CCC) and Copy, Cover, Compare (MCCC) procedures are effective interventions for improving math fluency. However, there is a gap in literature exploring the use of these interventions for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The purpose of the current study was to compare the use of CCC and MCCC for children with ASD using a multi-component single-case experimental design. The results showed no notable difference between the interventions. Implications and limitations, particularly surrounding experimental control, are discussed in detail.

  • Ethical Considerations for Interdisciplinary Collaboration with
           Prescribing Professionals
    • Authors: Mindy K. Newhouse-Oisten; Kimberly M. Peck; Alissa A. Conway; Jessica E. Frieder
      Abstract: Abstract Behavior analysts often work as part of an interdisciplinary team, and different team members may prescribe different interventions for a single client. One such intervention that is commonly encountered is a change in medication. Changes in medication regimens have the potential to alter behavior in a number of ways. As such, it is important for all team members to be aware of every intervention and to consider how different interventions may interact with each other. These facts make regular and clear communication among team members vital for treatment success. While working as part of an interdisciplinary team, behavior analysts must abide by their ethics code, which sometimes means advocating for their client with the rest of the team. This article will review some possible implications of medicinal interventions, potential ethical issues that can arise, and a case study from the authors’ experience. Finally, the authors propose a decision-making tree that can aid in determining the best course of action when a team member proposes an intervention in addition to, or concurrent with, interventions proposed by the behavior analyst.

  • Treating Food Approval-Seeking Behavior: One Bite at a Time
    • Authors: Sarah R. Jenkins; Linda A. LeBlanc; Garrick P. Lambert
      Abstract: Abstract The prevalence of feeding problems in children with autism is high. The current investigation was a treatment of a unique presentation of food-related prompt dependence with a 6-year-old boy with autism who was reliant upon approval from adults for consumption of every bite of food. Instructions were used to establish independent eating, in which the number of bites specified in the instruction was systematically increased. Independent bites increased from a baseline level of 0.67% to a final phase level of almost 100%, and the instruction was faded to “eat your lunch”.

  • An Intervention Featuring Public Posting and Graphical Feedback to Enhance
           the Performance of Competitive Dancers
    • Authors: Mallory Quinn; Raymond Miltenberger; Aracely Abreu; Taylor Narozanick
      Abstract: Abstract This study evaluated an intervention package that used public posting and feedback to enhance dance movements for adolescent dancers on a competition team. Four dancers each performing two or three dance movements (a turn, kick, and/or leap) had their scores posted on a bulletin board at their studio. Dance movements were scored as a percentage correct by using a 14- to 16-step task analysis checklist. Intervention was evaluated in a multiple baseline across behavior design. The students received graphical feedback on their performance from the previous weeks and saw the scoring sheet that reviewed the incorrect and correct aspects of their performance. This study found that this treatment package including public posting and feedback enhanced each of the dance movements for all participants.
