Olaff, Heidi Skorge; Holth, Per – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2020
Bidirectional naming (BiN) is the integration of speaker and listener responses, reinforced by social consequences. Unfortunately, these consequences often do not function as reinforcers for behavior in children with autism. Accordingly, the repertoire of BiN is also often limited in these children. Previous research has suggested that so-called…

Barcelos Nomicos, Laura; Jacobs, Kenneth W.; Locey, Matthew L. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2020
Human decision making is partly determined by the verbal stimuli involved in a choice. Verbal stimuli that may be particularly relevant to human decision making are the words "should" and "like," whereby "should" is presumably associated with what one ought to choose, and "like" is presumably associated with…

Cengher, Mirela; Ramazon, Nicholas H.; Strohmeier, Craig W. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2020
Members (behaviors) of a response class are equivalent in that they produce the same functional reinforcer. Oftentimes, some members of a response class occur at higher rates than others. This can be problematic when the members that occur at high rates are socially inappropriate (e.g., self-injury, aggression, or disruption). The participant in…

Belisle, Jordan; Paliliunas, Dana; Lauer, Taylor; Giamanco, Annalise; Lee, Breanna; Sickman, Elana – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2020
Theoretical extensions of Skinner's verbal behavior that emphasize derived relational responding (stimulus equivalence, relational frame theory, and bidirectional naming) can improve the complexity and scope of applied behavior-analytic training models with children. We evaluated the prevalence and content of empirical research on derived…

Glassford, Tyler S.; Wilson, Alyssa N.; Gupta, Vanshika – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2020
The present study replicated and extended previous research by exploring the extent to which rules altered participants' engagement in risky betting in an electronic blackjack game. A multiple-baseline across-participants design with predetermined phase changes was used to assess 4 recreational gamblers' betting patterns in blackjack across 3…

Silbaugh, Bryant C.; Swinnea, Samantha; Falcomata, Terry S. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2020
More is known about how to reduce challenging behavior with functional communication training (FCT) than how to mitigate its resurgence during or following a course of treatment. Research suggests reinforcing mand variability during FCT may mitigate the resurgence of challenging behavior, but validated procedures for reinforcing mand variability…

Cariveau, Tom; Robbins, Halley; Cividini-Motta, Catia; Delfs, Caitlin – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2020
Recent articles by the editorial board of "The Analysis of Verbal Behavior" (TAVB) include calls for greater integration, collaboration, and inclusion. In so doing, it may be helpful to consider TAVB's current reach. Previously, Petursdottir, Peterson, and Peters ("The Analysis of Verbal Behavior," "25," 109-121,…

Leaf, Justin B.; Cihon, Joseph H.; Ferguson, Julia L.; Milne, Christine M.; Leaf, Ronald; McEachin, John – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2020
Errorless learning and error correction procedures are commonly used when teaching tact relations to individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Research has demonstrated the effectiveness of both procedures, as well as compared them. The majority of these studies have been completed through the use of single-subject experimental…

Hranchuk, Kieva; Douglas Greer, R.; Longano, Jennifer – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2019
Prior research found that without the naming cusp, children did not learn from instructional demonstrations presented before learn units (IDLUs) (i.e., modeling an expected response twice for a learner prior to delivering an instructional antecedent), however, following the establishment of naming, they could. The present study was designed to…

Tullis, Christopher A.; Marya, Videsha; Alice Shillingsburg, M. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2019
Instructive feedback (IF) is a procedure in which secondary targets are presented to a learner during instruction for primary skills. Previous research has demonstrated that students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) may acquire at least a portion of skills presented via IF. Although it is a promising instructional methodology for learners with…

Akers, Jessica S.; Retzlaff, Billie J.; Fisher, Wayne W.; Greer, Brian D.; Kaminski, Ami J.; DeSouza, Andresa A. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2019
Most verbal behavior curricula for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) focus on teaching multiple mands during the early stages of training (e.g., picture exchange communication system; Bondy & Frost, 1994). However, few, if any, of those curricula train children with ASD to differentially mand only for reinforcers that are reasonable…

Solares, Leslie; Fryling, Mitch J. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2019
A large amount of learning occurs through the observation of stimulus-stimulus relations. One procedure that involves this sort of learning is the stimulus-pairing observation procedure (SPOP). The current study involves a systematic replication of Byrne, Rehfeldt, and Aguirre (2014). Tests for the emergence of tact and listener relations were…

Axe, Judah B.; Phelan, Stephanie H.; Irwin, Caitlin L. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2019
We reviewed 12 studies in which the researcher taught problem-solving strategies, such as self-questioning and visual imagining, to children and adolescents with and without disabilities to facilitate the learning of math, spelling, play/social, and communication skills. We analyzed these studies in terms of types of problem-solving strategies,…

Dal Ben, Rodrigo; Goyos, Celso – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2019
The form of a verbal response allows for reinforcement mediation and language transmission across cultures. Reinforcement, in turn, plays a decisive role in learning verbal forms. The present work addresses methodological limitations of previous studies, providing further evidence of the role of automatic reinforcement in achieving parity with…

Barry, Lorna; Holloway, Jennifer; Gunning, Ciara – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2019
Communication deficits in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can manifest in a myriad of lifelong social and educational challenges. Many children with ASD fail to learn vocal verbal behavior and may require intensive individualized intervention to learn early verbal operants. The current research aimed to evaluate the effects of a…
