Functions of Behavior
100

This method of teaching involves situations and items the learner would already be interacting with, or situations we are able to be captured as they occur.

What is NET (Natural Environment Training)?

100

Anything a living organism does.

What is a behavior?

100

This reinforcer's presentation is contingent on the response, resulting in the INCREASE in the response being repeated in the future. (Joe clapped when we asked him to, so we delivered his gummy candy.)

What is Positive Reinforcement?

100

Environmental events that occur before a behavior.

What is an Antecedent?

100

This function of behavior is based around the subject's desire to get out of a non-preferred task or away from non-preferred stimuli or demands.

What is Escape?

200

A specific method of teaching in which a task is isolated and taught across multiple trials. The same opportunity is presented and the same response is expected.

What is a DTT (Discrete Trial Training)?

200

The increase in rate or severity of a behavior when a BIP is initially implemented or changed.

What is an Extinction Burst?

200

This reinforcer is when we REMOVE a non-preferred stimuli contingent upon the response, resulting in INCREASED probability of that response. (Tara asked for a break from math homework politely. We removed her math homework and all demands for the duration of the break. Next time she will use her words again, because it got her the break she wanted.)

What is Negative Reinforcement?

200

This is what you use to invoke target response, also known as the SD. ("Give me red." etc)

What is the Discriminative Stimulus?
200

This function of behavior is based on the subject's desire for someone to look at them, interact with them, even if it's negative.

What is Attention?

300

This is a form of Discrimination Training where there is only one answer (no field). ("Jump", name, etc)

What is Successive?

300

This is the term for when you take detailed notes following a target behavior, using the Antecedent, Behavior, and Consequence (ABC) format.

What is the 3-term contingency?

300

This is a form of punishment where the presentation is contingent on an incorrect response, resulting in the decrease of the response in the future. (Joe hit their friend, we told them not to hit. He did not hit them again.)

What is Positive Punishment?

300

This is when a learner carries over learned skills to a new task or applies them to other tasks than the taught one.

What is Generalization?

300

This function of behavior is based on the subject's desire for a certain item or stimuli, and how they can get it.

What is Tangible?

400

This is a form of Discrimination Training where there are a field of answers for the learner to choose from. (give me color, touch apple, etc)

What is Simultaneous?

400

When a client is no longer motivated by the chosen reinforcer. (Ella has been given chips for each correct answer for an hour now. She has not had any juice yet, and does not want chips anymore. The reinforcer is changed to juice, and Ella resumes compliance with lessons.)

What is Satiation?

400

This type of punishment is the removal of a preferred stimuli contingent on an incorrect response/behavior, resulting in the decrease of that behavior. (Lisa likes music, but she scratched and yelled at the tech to turn it up. The music was then turned off and put away. Next time, she asked nicely.)

Negative Punishment

400

When a highly preferred activity can be used to reinforce a low-preferred activity. Also called the Grandma's Rule. (First lesson, then snack time)

What is the Premack Principle?

400

This function of behavior is based on how it makes the subject feel, that they get something from it without input from anyone else. (stereotypy, etc.)

What is Automatic/Sensory?

500

This is the prompting method for a mastered lesson, or a lesson on maintenance.

What is Least-to-Most Prompting?

500

Deficits in: Social-emotional reciprocity, nonverbal communicative patterns, and relationships as well as the presence of: stereotypy, restricted/fixated interests, and unusual interaction with sensory input

What is the DSM-V criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder?

500

A consequence that is contingent on the response being done in a certain way or time frame. (Lily is told that she has 10 minutes left. If she cleans up quickly, she can have scooter until it's time to go home. Lily refuses to clean until 30 seconds before it's time to go, resulting in no scooter time.)

What is a natural consequence?

500

This is a differential reinforcement procedure in which we teach the learner a different response that will get the same desired outcome (receives the reinforcement sought by the problem behavior). ("Instead of hitting, you can say 'I need a break.' Then I will let you take a break.")

What is Functional Communication Training (FCT)?

500

These functions are: Control, Anxiety, and Routines

What are the secondary functions of behavior?
