In this unit, we define preference assessments and we explore how to determine a client’s motivation by conducting three types of preference assessments, which are: testing, observing, and asking. For each type of preference assessment, we discuss examples, as well as some limitations to the method of asking. Afterwards, we explain how preference assessments relate to performance deficits. Finally, we go over the inter-trial interval, as well as guidelines for effective use of the inter-trial interval.
Participants will learn to:
1) Conduct preference assessments
2) Determine the most appropriate preference assessment to use
3) Identify what the inter-trial interval is
4) Follow the guidelines for the most effective use of the inter-trail interval time
