I taught my client, Sarah, to say “Hi” whenever one of her friends approach and says “Hi” to her. One day, while on an outing, we saw one of Sarah’s friends. Her friend says “Hi” to Sarah and to my surprise, Sarah says “Hello! How are you?” Sarah’s behavior towards her friend is an example of?

When I start my new client Sarah, I first meet with the parent of the client to gather some basic personal and behavioral information. The parents report Sarah behaviors at school are very disruptive to her peers and she often is sent to the office because of her behaviors. With the parent’s permission, I go into the school and ask the teacher about the behaviors she has directly observed. The teacher reports Sarah often engages in verbal refusal, yelling, kicking, and throwing school supplies about an hour before lunch time, every day. I record this information in my Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA). What method did I use to collect behavioral data for my Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA)? 


Stimulus


Functional


Direct


Indirect

I conduct a task analysis on answering the door when the doorbell rings. The steps of my task analysis are: walk to the door, open the door, and close the door after letting the person in. My client mastered “walk to the door” very quickly using a forward chaining procedure but seems to be having trouble with the next step, “open the door”. All of the following are possible solutions to help facilitate acquisition and mastery of the task except: 


Withholding reinforcement until the client completes the entire task independently

Add in an additional step between “walk to the door” and “open the door”

Provide least-to-most prompting for the “open the door” step 

Switch to another type of chaining procedure


Withholding reinforcement until the client completes the entire task independently

While conducting a Functional Analysis (FA), my client engages in the problem behavior. I say “No! Don’t do that!” and then immediately turn away from the client.

Which condition of the Functional Analysis am I testing? 


Free play


Contingent Attention


Contingent Escape


Alone

Contingent Attention

Jim, a BCBA, started with a new client. During the intake, the client’s parents spoke very highly about their child’s intelligence and ability to learn new skills quickly. One limitation the parents spoke of is his lack of vocal communication. Jim knew the new client was “capable” of learning to talk so he started requiring the client to uses phrases with 5 or more words in order to earn a reinforcer. After several sessions of being unable to receive reinforcement, the client became frustrated and engaged in very long durations of crying. At this point, Jim determined he had become an aversive stimulus. What did Jim fail to realize? 

He didn’t do anything wrong because the parents spoke highly about their child’s intelligence and ability to learn new skills quickly. 

He does not have the authority to make changes to the program, only the director can.

He set the requirement to earn reinforcement to low.

It is unclear if the skill is in the client repertoire and may need to be taught how to say words first.
