  26. 26. ContentNuts & Bolts of Behavior Establishing Extinction & Operational Operations & Preference DefinitionsDiscriminative Stimuli Assessments Original Behavior Antecedent Consequence Replacement Behavior
  27. 27. ContentThe ABCs of Behavior Establishing Operational Operations & DefinitionsDiscriminative Stimuli Antecedent
  28. 28. ContentSpecial Antecedents •  Establishing Operations – Make a reinforcer more reinforcing •  A snack-free afternoon makes food at dinner more reinforcing •  Discriminative Stimuli – Signal what behavior will be reinforced or punished •  A direction such as “please sit down” is a sign that sitting down will be reinforced Photos viajcsnotebook.org & safetysign.com

  30. 30. ContentDiscriminative Stimuli?•  These superstars give us clues about which behavior will result in reinforcement – Child interrupts while you are talking on the phone? •  Consider using a Picture Rule to teach that the presence of the phone means that the child can find a book to wait & that attempts to talk will be honored when the phone call is done. Then make the rule come true! Photos via allposters.com & wellreadstudent.com
