Abstract/Artist Statement

Three children with developmental disabilities were exposed to two choice conditions in the context of tacting novel object labels during discrete trial teaching sessions: pretrial choice of preferred item and within-session choice of preferred item. The dependent variable was the cumulative number of teaching levels achieved in each condition. Results were mixed, with one child performing better in the pretrial choice condition and two children performing better in the within-session choice condition. Possible explanations for this pattern of results are discussed.
