Further Examination of Discriminated Functional Communication
Leon, Yanerys; Hausman, Nicole L.; Kahng, SungWoo; Becraft, Jessica L.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v43 n3 p525-530 Fall 2010
One child with developmental disabilities was taught to mand for attention by saying "excuse me." Treatment effects were extended to multiple training contexts by teaching the participant to attend to naturally occurring discriminative stimuli through differential reinforcement of communication during periods of the experimenter's nonbusy activities (e.g., reading a magazine). Results are discussed in terms of future research on the generalization and maintenance of functional communication in the natural environment. (Contains 2 figures.)
