Article Link: Part 1 The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of positional prompts on teaching receptive identification to children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder by implementing a most-to-least prompting system, in the absence of other prompt types, on receptive label acquisition with six children diagnosed with ASD between ages four to nine. A three-level hierarchy to teach receptive picture identification was used. To evaluate the effectiveness of these positional prompts, a non-concurrent multiple baseline design across behaviors was used. The study was done to evaluate the rate of correct responding when a positional prompt is provided. Findings showed that for the majority of the participants the implementation of positional prompts resulted in participants reaching mastery criterion and maintaining skills at follow-up. This means that positional prompts can be an effective way to establish stimulus control. Identify the research question(s) Can positional prompts be effective when used in a most-to-least prompting system? Can positional prompts be used/be effective in the absence of other prompt types? Are the research questions clearly stated? Explain your rationale using citations from the course content. If the questions are not clearly stated, please provide a revision. The authors pointed out previous articles such as Soluaga et al. (2008) and Leaf et al. (2014) evaluated the effectiveness of positional prompts when combined with other forms of prompting but did not show dataon how frequently positional prompts were implemented and did not
specifically evaluate the rate of correct responding when a positional prompt was provided. However, the research questions were not directly stated. The research question should be revised as follows: 1. Can positional prompts be effective when used in a most-to-least prompting system?
