O'Neill, John; Rehfeldt, Ruth Anne – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2016
The purpose of the present experiment was to replicate and extend the literature on using selection-based instruction to teach responses to interview questions by (a) evaluating the emergence of recombinative (i.e., combinations of taught) and novel (i.e., untaught) topography-based intraverbal responses, in addition to exact repetitions of taught…

Esch, Barbara E.; Esch, John W. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2016
"In the late 1950's, Jack Michael, a bright but irritating young psychology instructor, moved from the Universities of Kansas to Houston to Arizona State. Along the way he befriended two nontraditional students, protected them through their Ph.D. programs, and turned them loose on the world: Teodoro Ayllon…and Montrose Wolf…" (Risley,…

Kodak, Tiffany; Paden, Amber R. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2015
The present investigation compared acquisition of intraverbals and listener behavior by function, feature, and class (FFC) for two children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We also measured tacts during listener training to evaluate whether higher levels of tacts predicted the emergence of intraverbal behavior following training. The results…

Aguirre, Angelica A.; Rehfeldt, Ruth Anne – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2015
Recent research has evaluated the utility of teaching potentially covert strategies to mediate overt performance. As an extension of this developing literature, the current study used a multiple-probe design to evaluate the effects of instructing in a visual imagining strategy on correct written spelling responses with three adolescents with…

Gamba, Jonas; Goyos, Celso; Petursdottir, Anna Ingeborg – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2015
Recently, there has been a proliferation of research on the functional independence of two of Skinner's (1957) verbal operants, the mand, and the tact. This research has produced highly variable results. In this article, we provide a critical review of the literature on mand-tact independence, a literature that has implications for both theory and…

Lechago, Sarah A.; Carr, James E.; Kisamore, April N.; Grow, Laura L. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2015
We evaluated the effects of multiple exemplar instruction (MEI) on the relation between listener and intraverbal categorization repertoires of six typically developing preschool-age children using a nonconcurrent multiple-probe design across participants. After failing to emit intraverbal categorization responses following listener categorization…

Allan, Alicia C.; Vladescu, Jason C.; Kisamore, April N.; Reeve, Sharon A.; Sidener, Tina M. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2015
Verbal behavior plays a fundamental role in the development of complex social and communication skills. Many children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder exhibit profound deficiencies in intraverbal repertoires and the development of social relationships. Recent studies that investigated the effects of intraverbal training on the emergence of…

Valentino, Amber L.; Conine, Daniel E.; Delfs, Caitlin H.; Furlow, Christopher M. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2015
Echoic, tact, and textual transfer procedures have been proven successful in establishing simple intraverbals (Braam and Poling "Applied Research in Mental Retardation," 4, 279-302, 1983; Luciano "Applied Research in Mental Retardation," 102, 346-357, 1986; Watkins et al.

Longano, Jennifer M.; Greer, R. Douglas – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2015
Naming refers to the incidental acquisition of word-object relations as listener and speaker without explicit reinforcement. To investigate possible sources of reinforcement for naming, we examined the effects of a procedure for conditioning reinforcement for observing responses on the emergence of naming in children who previously lacked it. The…

Byrne, Brittany L.; Rehfeldt, Ruth Anne; Aguirre, Angelica A. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2014
The stimulus pairing observation procedure (SPOP) combined with multiple exemplar instruction (MEI) has been shown to be effective with typically developing preschoolers in establishing the joint stimulus control required for the development of naming. The purpose of the current investigation was to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the…

Pérez-González, Luis Antonio; Cereijo-Blanco, Noelia; Carnerero, José Julio – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2014
Naming consists of tacting an object and selecting it upon hearing its name as a result of emergence. After acquiring naming, children learn object-name relations more quickly and, hence, it is an important achievement in development. We studied the acquisition of the two skills that define naming, using two procedures, in seven typically…

Oleson, Chelsey R.; Baker, Jonathan C. – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2014
Millions of Americans are diagnosed with dementia, and that number is only expected to rise. The diagnosis of dementia comes with impairments, especially in language. Furthermore, dementia-related functional declines appear to be moderated by environmental variables (Alzheimer's Association, "Alzheimer's & Dementia: The Journal of the…

Kuroda, Toshikazu; Lattal, Kennon A.; García-Penagos, Andrés – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2014
Using a conditional discrimination procedure, pigeons were exposed to a nonverbal analogue of qualifying autoclitics such as "definitely" and "maybe." It has been suggested that these autoclitics are similar to tacts except that they are under the control of private discriminative stimuli. Instead of the conventional assumption…

Loughrey, Tara Olivia; Contreras, Bethany P.; Majdalany, Lina M.; Rudy, Nikki; Sinn, Stephanie; Teague, Patricia; Marshall, Genevieve; McGreevy, Patrick; Harvey, A. Celeste – Analysis of Verbal Behavior, 2014
We evaluated the use of behavioral skills training (BST) to train caregivers to conduct procedures commonly associated with mand training. We trained two caregivers on the following procedures: (a) conducting preference assessments, (b) delivering preferred items contingent on appropriate behavior, (c) capturing and contriving motivating…
