Unit 6B Question 1 2 / 2 pts Which of the following components should be included as part of an early learner’s verbal behavior program during natural-environment teaching (NET): Compliance training Motor imitations Intraverbal training Correct! Stimulus-stimulus pairing In natural-environment teaching, the instructor should initially focus on two main areas: mand training and stimulus-stimulus pairing . Stimulus-stimulus pairing occurs when the teacher provides unconditioned or strongly conditioned reinforcement for a student’s correct response—and pairs their own voice (“good work”), smile, and other social behaviors with the delivery of that reinforcing stimulus, thereby making their own social attention begin to effectively function as a form of conditioned reinforcement. In addition, antecedent stimulus-stimulus pairing occurs when the therapist is present whenever preferred items/edibles/activities are easily available. Keep in mind here that, in general, it is the artificial environment teaching targets (versus NET) which include training the individual to correctly respond to receptive commands and stimulus identification protocols.
Question 2 0 / 2 pts When teaching tacts to an early learner, the instructor should teach tacts that:
Can easily be transferred into autoclitics You Answered Label items that are necessary to know before mands can be learned Mands are learned first, not tacts. Mands arise from the EO, not tacts. Autoclitics are taught last, and modify the primary operant—they have no special or specific relationship to tacts, per se, and certainly not with an early learner. If teaching tacts of items/characteristics/actions that the individual is very unlikely to experience in their day to day life, then those tacts are non-functional. When teaching new skills, it is ALWAYS best to aim at teaching skills that are functional for that individual so that the natural environment will take over more quickly as the mediating variable. Question 3 0 / 2 pts In an advanced verbal behavior program, you would most likely focus on teaching mands for _________.
An instructor should begin teaching mands for information (e.g., “Where is my toy?”, or,
