Increasing Academic Compliance with Mathematics Tasks Using the High-Preference Strategy with a Student with Autism
Banda, Devender R.; Kubina, Richard M., Jr.
Preventing School Failure, v54 n2 p81-85 2010
The authors investigated the effectiveness of using high-preference (high-p) mathematics tasks for increasing task initiation of low-preference (low-p) mathematics tasks with a 13-year-old middle school student with autism. They used an ABAB design to determine the effectiveness of high-p tasks with to comply with low-p tasks. Results indicated that the student took less time to initiate low-p mathematics problems that were preceded by high-p mathematics problems. This study extends the literature on high-p techniques to enhance academic compliance behaviors for students with autism. The authors discuss the results and future implications. (Contains 1 figure.)
