Berkman, Sydney J.; Roscoe, Eileen M.; Bourret, Jason C. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
An important skill for behavior analysts is creating graphs that clearly convey outcomes and conform to publication conventions. GraphPad Prism is software designed for creating scientific graphs, but no prior research has empirically evaluated training graphing skills using Prism. Two effective training methods are enhanced written instructions…

DeSouza, Andresa A.; Fisher, Wayne W.; Rodriguez, Nicole M. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
Convergent intraverbals represent a specific type of intraverbal in which multiple components of one speaker's verbal behavior control a specific verbal response from another speaker (e.g., Speaker 1: What wooly, horned animal lives in the high country? Speaker 2: Bighorn sheep). To foster the development of advanced language, Sundberg and…

Pachis, Jacqueline A.; Zonneveld, Kimberley L. M. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
The Internet and information and communications technologies (ICTs) have been found to produce meaningful social interactions and greater social support among older adults (White et al., [White, H., 2002]). Despite these benefits, the Internet and ICTs are not widely used among the older-adult population (Cresci, Yarandi, & Morrell, [Cresci,…

Wiskow, Katie M.; Matter, Ashley L.; Donaldson, Jeanne M. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
The Good Behavior Game (GBG) is a popular group contingency implemented to decrease disruptive behavior in classrooms. However, despite numerous replications of the GBG, there are few direct comparisons evaluating the effectiveness of specific components of the GBG. In the present study, we directly compared the type of feedback delivered during…

Grob, Carolyn M.; Lerman, Dorothea C.; Langlinais, Channing A.; Villante, Natalie K. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
Few studies have evaluated interventions to improve the job-related social skills of adults with autism spectrum disorder. In this study, we examined the efficacy of a treatment package for teaching several social skills that are critical to job success, such as responding appropriately to feedback and asking for a task model from the supervisor.…

Foley, Elizabeth A.; Dozier, Claudia L.; Lessor, Amber L. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
The Good Behavior Game (GBG) is an effective intervention package for decreasing disruptive behavior in various populations and environments. There is, however, limited research evaluating the GBG with preschoolers. Furthermore, few studies have evaluated the effects of components of the GBG, and of those that have, most have done so only after…

Stannis, Rebecca L.; Crosland, Kimberly A.; Miltenberger, Raymond; Valbuena, Diego – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
This study evaluated behavioral skills training (BST) and in situ training (IST) to teach a response to bullying (RtB) to four adults with intellectual disabilities who were victims of bullying. The RtB consisted of refraining from retaliating, stating disapproval, walking away, and telling a staff member. In situ assessments were conducted in the…

Deshais, Meghan A.; Fisher, Alyssa B.; Kahng, SungWoo – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
We used a reversal design with an embedded multielement design to compare the effects of an independent group contingency and a randomized dependent group contingency on compliance with assigned literacy worksheets in a first-grade general education classroom. Nine participants were selected based on low levels of compliance in baseline or by…

Groves, Emily A.; Austin, Jennifer L. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
The Good Behavior Game (GBG) is a classroom management system that employs an interdependent group contingency, whereby students work as a team to win the game. Although previous anecdotal data have suggested that this arrangement may promote prosocial behavior, teachers may have concerns about its fairness and potential to evoke negative peer…

Watkins, Laci; O'Reilly, Mark; Kuhn, Michelle; Ledbetter-Cho, Katherine – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
The literature suggests that children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) educated in inclusive settings generally do not interact with typically developing classmates during social activities. This study assessed whether an intervention package consisting of interest-based structured play activities involving adult instruction, modeling, and…

Lillie, Madelynn A.; Tiger, Jeffrey H. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
Previous researchers have taught sighted adults to match braille sample stimuli to print comparisons in a matching-to-sample (MTS) format and assessed the emergence of other braille repertoires, such as transcribing and reading braille following this training. Although participants learned to match to sample with braille, they displayed limited…

Moore, James W.; Quintero, Laura M. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
The popularity of Olympic-style weightlifting in fitness routines is growing, but participating in these exercises with improper technique places lifters at increased risk for injury. Fitness training professionals have developed multiple teaching strategies, but have not subjected these strategies to systematic evaluation, particularly with…

Welsh, Fernanda; Najdowski, Adel C.; Strauss, Danielle; Gallegos, Lindabeth; Fullen, Jesse A. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
We evaluated procedures for teaching three children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder the perspective-taking component skill of tacting what others are sensing across all five senses: see, taste, feel, hear, and smell. Using a multiple baseline across participants design, we evaluated a training package consisting of multiple exemplar…

Cariveau, Tom; La Cruz Montilla, Astrid; Gonzalez, Elizabeth; Ball, Sydney – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
Error correction procedures are remedial strategies presented following an incorrect response that increases the probability that a correct response will occur in the future. Error correction is commonly used during skill acquisition programs for children with developmental disabilities; however, the specific strategy used may differ considerably.…

Belisle, Jordan; Stanley, Caleb R.; Alholail, Amani M.; Galliford, Megan E.; Dixon, Mark R. – Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, 2019
The present study evaluated the efficacy of a set of procedures for bringing tact extensions of abstract tactile properties under stimulus control. Two participants with disabilities who communicated via a picture-based communication system received reinforcement for tacts of tactile properties of four wet/dry and four hard/soft stimuli. Test…
