Sheyab, Mahmoud; Pritchard, Josh; Malady, Mark
Analysis of Verbal Behavior, v30 n2 p141-147 Oct 2014
In the current study, we reinforced tacts with positive qualifying autoclitics for reading and evaluated the subsequent effect on the allocation of reading behavior. Participants were four typically developing children between 9 and 12 years of age whose primary language was Arabic. We exposed each participant to pre- and posttreatment sessions to assess behavior allocation across activities and materials using a multiple-baseline design. During treatment, the experimenters praised positive statements about reading by each participant. Following treatment, four out of four of participants increased their allocation towards reading.
