The Use of Behavioral Skills Training and in situ Feedback to Protect Children with Autism from Abduction Lures

Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v47 n4 p856-860 Win 2014
We examined the effects of behavioral skills training with in situ feedback on safe responding by children with autism to abduction lures that were presented after a high-probability (high-p) request sequence. This sequence was intended to simulate a grooming or recruitment process. Results show that all 3 participants ultimately acquired the safety response to abduction lures presented after a high-p sequence and maintained the safety response at a 1-month follow-up.
