What is that things you prefer are not always effective reinforcers (you may not want to work for things you prefer)?

200

This is when an antecedent occur in relation to the behavior. 

What is before the behavior?

This is the term for taking data on every single instance of a behavior. 

What is frequency?

200

This triggers the behavior.

What is an antecedent?

300

What is negative reinforcement?

300

This is a preference assessment where you observe what the client interacts with and track the duration of how long they play with that item.

What is a free operant preference assessment?

300

500

This is the kind of motivating operation that may make an item in a preference assessment more valuable in the moment. 

What is an establishing operation?

500

These are some antecedent interventions that may be helpful for attention maintained behaviors. 

What is satiation of attention, random attention throughout the day, (and so on)?

500
