In this section, you will learn about antecedent interventions, which involve changing antecedent events to reduce the client's need to take part in the problem behavior. We discuss how abolishing operations relate to these interventions. Then, you will be provided with many procedures and examples of how to use a variety of antecedent interventions, such as: Learner preferences; Choice-making; Pre-activity interventions; Functional communication training; Altering instruction/task delivery; Behavior Momentum; Errorless compliance; Environmental modification; Environmental enrichment; Noncontingent reinforcement; and Noncontingent access.
Participants will learn:
1 The definition of antecedent interventions
2) The various types of antecedent interventions that one can use to decrease the likelihood of problem behaviors occurring
3) Various procedures to follow when implementing antecedent interventions
