Flashcards in Assessment & Treatment Deck (16):
1

split-half reliability

evaluated for internal consistency,
whether responses to items on first 1/2
correlate with second 1/2

2

construct validity

test scores consistent with theoretical concepts or constructs

3

negative reinforcement

Strengthening a behavior by terminating and aversive event

4

dynamic assessment

requires some treatment before making a full diagnosis
& testing again to make final decision

5

intermixed & pure probes

best way to measure generalized production of target skills,
withholding reinforcement for correct responses

6

baselines

establish initial (natural) level of responses,
establish need for treatment,
compare changes from initial to terminal phase of treatment,
part of EBP

7

modeling

modeling clinicians behavior,
treatment target

8

indirect method of response reduction

immediate verbal praise & following reinforcement for desirable behaviors,
no reinforcement & ignoring of undesirable behaviors,
gradual extension of duration between verbal praise & reinforcement,
eventually reduced to occasional praise only

9

percentile rank

remaining % did better
(25th percentile = 75% scored higher)

10

antecedents or
treatment stimuli

objects,
pictures,
instructions,
modeling,
prompts,
other stimuli

11

EBP assessment procedures

general screening,
case history,
hearing screening,
orofacial exam,
interview,
speech & language sample,
related assessment data

12

norm-referenced

judges clients performance compared to normative group

13

standardized alternative assessments

client-specific,
criterion-referenced,
authentic,
dynamic,
portfolio

14

treatment target strategies

normative,
client-specific,
functional communication,
integrated approach

15

treatment sequence

based on:
response complexity,
degree of treatment structure,
response modes,
multiple targets,
training & maintenance,
shifts in treatment contingencies

16

booster treatment

important to help maintain skills when performance deteriorates,
may be same as original , modified, or different form of treatment,
typically brief unless deterioration is substantial
