About the Course
According to Skinner (1938), stimuli that accompany or precede responses that are reinforced can come to influence those responses in important and often complex ways. Stimuli with complex features may result in only one aspect or feature of that stimulus gaining control over the behavior (Rincover & Koegel, 1975). Individuals with autism may require that behavioral interventions include carefully planned contingencies to ensure the proper development of stimulus control, including discrimination, generalization, and concept formation. Thus, stimuli used within behavioral intervention must be systematically used and carefully designed to maximize client’s outcomes and promote discrimination, generalization, and maintenance of the skills taught.
The cost for the CEU course is $10.
