Define DISCRIMINATIVE STIMULUS

An antecedent stimulus that signals the availabilty of reinforcement

2

What is being described?
An antecedent stimulus that signals the availabilty of reinforcement

DISCRIMINATIVE STIMULUS

3

Define DISCRIMINATIVE STIMULUS in ABA terms

A stimulus in the presence of which responses of some type have been reinforced and the abscence of the stimulus the same type of responses have occurred and not been reinforced

4

what is being described?
A stimulus in the presence of which responses of some type have been reinforced and the abscence of the stimulus the same type of responses have occurred and not been reinforced

DISCRIMINATIVE STIMULUS in ABA terms

5

Define STIMULUS DELTA

An antcedent stimuls that signals the NON availability of reinforcement

6

What is being described?
An antcedent stimuls that signals the NON availability of reinforcement

STIMULUS DELTA

7

Define STIMULUS DELTA ABA style

A stimulus in the prescence of which a given behaviour has not produced reinforcement in the past.

8

What is being described?
A stimulus in the prescence of which a given behaviour has not produced reinforcement in the past.

STIMULUS DELTA ABA style

9

Define stimulus control

A situation in which the latency, rate, duration or amplitude of a behaviour is altered by the prescence or absence of an antecedent stimulus

10

What is being described?
A situation in which the latency, rate, duration or amplitude of a behaviour is altered by the prescence or absence of an antecedent stimulus

STIMULUS CONTROL

11

Define STIMULUS GENERALIZATION

When an antecedent stimulus has a history of evoking a response that has been reinforced in its presence.
The same type of behaviour tends to be evoked by stimuli that share similar physical properties with the controlling antecedent stimulus

12

What is being described?

When an antecedent stimulus has a history of evoking a response that has been reinforced in its presence.
The same type of behaviour tends to be evoked by stimuli that share similar physical properties with the controlling antecedent stimulus

STIMULUS GENERALIZATION

13

Define STIMULUS EQUIVALENCE

The emergence of accurate responding to untrained or non reinforeced stimulus - stimulus relations

14

What is being described ?
The emergence of accurate responding to untrained or non reinforeced stimulus - stimulus relations

STIMULUS EQUIVALENCE

15

Describe STIMULUS DISCRIMINATION TRAINING

The conventional procedure requires one behaviour and two antecedent stimulus conditions
Responses are reinforced in the prescence of one stimulus condition SD but not in the prescence of the other stimulus

16

What is being described?
The conventional procedure requires one behaviour and two antecedent stimulus conditions

Stimulus discrimination training

17

Describe MATCHING-TO-SAMPLE procedure

A procedure for investigating conditional relations
Start with the participant making a response that presents or reveals the sample stimulus
The sample stimulus may or may not be removed and two or more comparsion stimuli are presented.
The participant then selects one of the compiarision stimuli.
Responses that select a comparision stimulus that matches the sample stimulus are reinforced.
No reinforecement is provided for responses selecting the non matching comparision stimuli.

The sample stimulus may or may not be removed and two or more cpmarsion stimuli are presented.
The particpant then selects one of the compiarision stimuli.
Responses that select a comparision stimulus that matches the sample stimulus are reinforced.
No reinforecement is provided for responses selecting the non matching comparision stimuli.
