Abstract

The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the relationship between independent mands emitted by a child and the frequency of problem behaviors that occur. Mand training was implemented to serve as a functional replacement for high-pitched screams (problem behavior) the child exhibited within a clinical setting. Results indicate that when given an appropriate replacement behavior, challenging behavior can decrease without alternative consequential strategies. This approach may be helpful when efforts are made to address problematic behavior in the classroom.
