The Effect of Varying Rates of Opportunities to Respond to Academic Requests on the Classroom Behavior of Students with EBD
AbstractThis study examines the effect of an increased rate of opportunities to actively respond to academic requests on the classroom behavior of students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD). Nine elementary school students with EBD served as participants. Results suggest that increases in opportunities to respond were associated with increased correct responses and task engagement and decreased disruptive behavior. Implications for research and practice, as well as limitations of the present study, are discussed.
