Comparison of Everyday and Every-Fourth-Day Probe Sessions with the Simultaneous Prompting Procedure
Reichow, Brian; Wolery, Mark
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v29 n2 p79-89 2009
Simultaneous prompting is a response-prompting procedure requiring two daily sessions: an instructional session in which a controlling prompt is provided on all trials, and a probe session in which no prompt is provided on any trials. In this study, two schedules of conducting the probe sessions (daily vs. every fourth day) were compared using the adapted alternating treatments design. Four children enrolled in an inclusive preschool program participated in the study and were taught two sets of behavior. The results showed that 3 of 4 participants acquired the target behaviors under both probing conditions, and 1 participant acquired the target behaviors only in the every-fourth-day probing condition.
