The Effects of Behavioral Skills Training on Mand Training by Staff and Unprompted Vocal Mands by Children
Nigro-Bruzzi, Darlene; Sturmey, Peter
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v43 n4 p757-761 Win 2010
We evaluated the effects of a training package, including instructions, modeling, rehearsal, and feedback, for training staff members to conduct mand training with children. Experimenters collected data on staff performance on each step of a task analysis of mand training and on unprompted child vocal mands. Training resulted in increases in staff performance in mand training and in unprompted mands by children. We observed replication of these effects across settings for all staff and for 3 of the children. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
