Emergence of Tacts following Mand Training in Young Children with Autism
Egan, Claire E.; Barnes-Holmes, Dermot
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v42 n3 p691-696 Fall 2009
This study sought to examine the effects of training mands on the emergence of tacts with the same response forms. Results indicated that training adjective sets as mands resulted in the emergence of adjective sets as tacts under modified, but not standard, antecedent conditions. The findings suggested that the apparent functional independence of mands and tacts may be explained by a lack of appropriate antecedent control over responding. (Contains 2 figures.)
