1

Behavior Chain

specific sequence of discrete responses, each associated with a particular stimulus condition
-each is an individual component of a chain.
-each is an individual component of a chain

2

behavior chain with limited hold

sequence of BXs that must be preformed correctly and within a specific time to produce reinforcement

3

chaining

various methods for linking specific sequences of stimuli and responses to form new performances

4

task analysis

involves breaking a complex skill into smaller, teachable units, the product of which is a series of sequentially ordered steps or task

5

forward chaining

behaviors identified in the TA are taught in their naturally occurring order.

6

total task chaining or whole task

variation of forward chaining in which the learner receives training on each step in the task analysis during every session

7

backward chaining

all behaviors identified in the task analysis are initially completed by the trainer except for the final BX

8

backwards chaining with leap aheads

follows same steps of backward chaining except that not every step id trained. some are probed
-decreases total training time

9

behavior chain interpretation strategy (BCIS)

relies on the participant's skill to perform the critical elements of a chain independently, but the chain is interrupted so that another BX can be emitted
