Brief Report: Can Contingent Imitation Reinforce Truck Lifting in a Three-Month-Old Infant?
Infant leg lifting is a well-researched operant response and now forms the basis of many childhood activities. Contingent imitation is a process where the trainer often will imitate the activities of the subject and attempt to get an increase in those...
Compliance with Daily Living Routines: A Case Study
The outcome of an intervention grounded in operant conditioning for a child with multiple medical diagnoses and mild mental retardation was examined. "David," an 8-year-old African American male, showed resistance to performing routine self-help activities...
Comprehensive ABA Programs: Integrating and Evaluating the Implementation of Varied Instructional Approaches
There are a number of instructional approaches available within ABA, each of which is uniquely suited to address specific deficits in learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Clinicians can utilize a combination of Discrete Trial Instruction (DTT),...
Constructing Single-Subject Reversal Design Graphs Using Microsoft word[TM]: A Comprehensive Tutorial
The single-subject reversal design graph is a critical element to basic research and applied behavior analysis. This technical tutorial gives thorough instructions for creating a reversal graph with most recent versions of Microsoft Word including...
Discovery of Motor Development: A Tribute to Esther Thelen
In this tribute to Esther Thelen's legacy, it is discussed how she brought concepts of new theoretical perspectives into the domain of motor development. As a consequence of this a rejuvenalisation of motor development took place in the mid 1980's....
Instructions Inadequate to the Task Control Response Recovery after Discrimination Reversal in Human Beings
Two experiments explored the role of irrelevant instructions on performance after reversal of conditional discriminations in human beings. Students were exposed to a matching-to-sample task where they had to choose between two comparative stimuli based...
Precision Teaching: The Standard Celeration Charts
Combining Pavlov's (1960/1927) use of frequency as a standard unit in the measurement of scientific phenomena and Skinner's (1938) use of frequency, free operant behavior, and the cumulative recorder with his knowledge of engineering and interest in...
The Differential Outcomes Effect: A Useful Tool to Improve Discriminative Learning in Humans
One of the most robust and reliable learning phenomena documented in the animal learning literature is the enhancement of discriminative performance by differential outcomes. To date, very few studies have focused on this effect in humans. The results...
