Week 8

  • Generalization and Maintenance

    At the center where you work, your client asks for a cookie. You are overjoyed, as you have been teaching this skill for months and it has finally been mastered. However, the behavior is not yet occurring in the home environment, where it matters most. Generalization and maintenance are important variables of every ABA program, and need to be programmed for specifically. What are some techniques you can embed in your teaching to generalize skills?

    This week, you will examine the importance of generalization and maintenance of an intervention. You will explore methods to promote stimulus generalization, response generalization, and maintenance of the skills. You will also discuss the importance of collaboration with other key stakeholders and how to maintain collaboration.

  • What You Need to Know

    Generalization and Maintenance

    A question all practitioners must ask is whether the skill they are teaching can occur in a different environment, with different examples, and with different people. If the answer is yes, the skill has been generalized. This week, we will be reading about generalization techniques (particularly response and stimulus generalization) and learn about procedures to establish generalization. We will also review the concept of maintenance, in which a skill will continue to occur after teaching has been completed.​

    INTERVENTION SUPPORT PLAN

    Overview

    In Week 5, you uncovered a wide range of scholarly works necessary for developing a strategic approach that entails multiple principles and tactics for changing behavior. In this assignment, you will create an intervention support plan to address the behavior of interest by using the research-based interventions you identified in your Literature Review.

    Instructions

    Use the following subheadings (formatted in current APA style) to label the main sections of your paper:

    Intervention Support Plan

    Apply behavioral assessment methods for the consideration and selection of intervention outcomes and strategies for the problem target behavior in your case study. You will exercise your clinical writing skills to create a detailed, function-based behavior intervention plan including the following:

    • Operational Definitions and Functions of Identified Problem Target Behaviors
      • Define the behavior to be targeted and list the functions of that behavior. Your operational definitions should be objective, specific, and measurable. Be sure to condense the information from your Week 2 assignment for this section.
    • Assessment Procedures/Consents
      • For this section, summarize all results of the assessment portion. Please be sure to:
        • Describe which assessment procedure you used.
        • Explain how you ran the assessment procedure.
        • Explain how you spoke to the parent when obtaining consent regarding the assessment procedure.
        • Explain how you ran your assessment and derived behavioral function.
      • In your narrative concerning your interaction with the parent, please demonstrate sensitivity to the fears and concerns they may have regarding assessment. Be sure to condense the information from your Week 2 assignment for this section. This section should be a maximum of two paragraphs.
    • Antecedent Procedures
      • Based on the literature review, describe the antecedent procedures you recommend to prevent the behavior from recurring.
        • Be sure to cite the research justifying your use of these procedures.
        • In addition, explain how compassionate approaches were considered when selecting and implementing the interventions procedures.
    • Consequence Procedures

        • Describe how to arrange the environment such that others will respond accordingly.
        • Be sure to cite the research justifying your use of these procedures.
        • In addition, explain how compassionate approaches were considered when selecting and implementing the intervention procedures.
    • Replacement Procedure
      • Based on the functions of behavior, describe the replacement behaviors you would like to address as well as your plan for how they would be taught and reinforced.
        • Be sure to cite the research justifying your use of these procedures and ensure replacement behavior results in the same reinforcer as the target behavior.
        • Also, explain how compassionate approaches were considered when selecting and implementing the intervention procedures.
    • Short-Term Goals
      • Describe behavioral goals for the client to be achieved with three months of service.
        • Be sure to cite the research justifying these goals.

    SUBMIT YOUR ASSIGNMENT

  • Write Your Discussion Post

    Promoting Generalized Outcomes

    Your readings in your Applied Behavior Analysis text relate to stimulus generalization and response generalization.

    For your discussion this week:

    • Find a video on YouTube or elsewhere that shows an example of stimulus generalization or response generalization.
    • Drop the link in the discussion forum.
    • Then, provide a rationale explaining why that particular example relates to your chosen form of generalization.
