An Analysis of Stimuli that Influence Compliance during the High-Probability Instruction Sequence
Normand, Matthew P.; Kestner, Kathryn; Jessel, Joshua
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v43 n4 p735-738 Win 2010
When we evaluated variables that influence the effectiveness of the high-probability (high-p) instruction sequence, the sequence was associated with a precipitous decrease in compliance with high-"p" instructions for 1 participant, thereby precluding continued use of the sequence. We investigated the reasons for this decrease. Stimuli associated with the low-"p" instruction were systematically added and removed in the context of the high-"p" instructions, and results suggest that the stimuli associated with the low-"p" instruction influenced compliance with the high-"p" instructions.
