Using a visual structured criterion for the analysis of alternating-treatment designs
Visual structured criterion
Although visual inspection remains common in the analysis of single-case designs, the lack of agreement between raters is an issue that may seriously compromise its validity. Thus, the purpose of our study was to develop ...
Comparison of tablet-delivered and instructor-delivered teaching on receptive identification in children with autism spectrum disorders
Tablet vs. instructor teaching
The purpose of our study was to compare the effectiveness of tablet- and instructor-delivered teaching (i.e., prompting and reinforcement) on the receptive identification of one-word concepts in children with autism spectrum ...
Using mobile technology to reduce engagement in stereotypy : a validation of decision-making algorithms
Mobile technology to reduce stereotypy
We developed an iOS app, the iSTIM, designed to support parents of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in reducing common repetitive vocal and motor behavior (i.e., stereotypy). The purpose of our study was to ...
Preliminary effects of conditioned establishing operations on stereotypy
(Springer Verlag, 2014)
We repeatedly paired preferred stimuli with known establishing properties and poster boards (i.e., neutral stimuli) to examine whether these poster boards would acquire the effects of a conditioned establishing operation ...
Comparing two methods to promote generalization of receptive identification in children with autism spectrum disorders
(Taylor & Francis, 2017-11-30)
Objective: The purpose of our study was to compare the effects of serial and concurrent training on the generalisation of receptive identification in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Methods: We taught one ...
Using the dual-criteria methods to supplement visual inspection: An analysis of nonsimulated data
Dual-criteria methods 1
The purpose of our study was to examine the probability of observing false positives in non-simulated data using the dual-criteria methods. We extracted data from published studies to produce a series of 16,927 datasets ...
Effects of multiple interventions for reducing vocal stereotypy: Developing a sequential intervention model
Despite the availability of several interventions designed to reduce engagement in vocal stereotypy, few studies have compared two or more interventions together. Consequently, practitioners have limited amount of data ...
Prevalence of stereotypy in individuals with developmental disabilities: a systematic review
(Springer Verlag, 2016)
Although many researchers have examined the prevalence of stereotypy in individuals with developmental disabilities, the results of previous studies have not been aggregated and analyzed methodically. Thus, we conducted a ...
Generalization following tablet-based instruction in children with autism spectrum disorders
Given that children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) often require one-to-one individualized instruction, using tablets as teaching tools may represent an interesting option in classrooms with high student to teacher ...
Effects of background music on socially reinforced problem behaviors in children with autism spectrum disorders
Prior research has shown that background music may be effective at reducing problem behaviors maintained by non-social (sensory) reinforcement in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). However, no study has examined ...
