About the event
Title: Considering Stimulus Disparity and Salience during Discrimination Training
Within behavior analytic clinical service delivery and research endeavors, stimulus control plays a very prominent role because discrimination skills are necessary for day-to-day interactions. The purpose of the present talk is to provide clarification on terminology as well as training procedures related to stimulus to control within behavior analytic discrimination training (e.g., selection of discriminative stimuli, selection of visual targets, differential observing responses, fading procedures). Additionally, I will provide an overview of stimulus control and discrimination training as they relate to the disparity and salience of stimuli, discuss recent research in these areas, and provide suggestions for future research as well as efficacious service delivery (Halbur et al., 2020, Halbur et al., 2021).
Following the presentation the attendees will be able to:
1. Consider and discuss how stimulus disparity may impact discrimination training procedures
2. Consider and discuss how stimulus salience may impact discrimination training procedures
3. Describe recent research that evaluates the efficacy and efficiency in discrimination training with respect to disparity and salience
4. Identify areas for efficacious clinical service delivery and/or future research within discrimination training during behavior analytic intervention.
