The Use of Demand Assessments: A Brief Review and Practical Guide

The Use of Demand Assessments: A Brief Review and Practical Guide It is important for practitioners to first conduct an indirect demand assessment to identify appropriate stimuli to include during the direct demand assessment. Information obtained from an indirect demand assessment is useful not only for identifying which demands to evaluate during the direct assessment but also for selecting stimuli associated with each demand. Conducting an indirect demand assessment with caregivers provides practitioners the opportunity to identify whether specific demand stimuli are associated with more challenging behavior (e.g., writing with a pen vs. a pencil) and whether demand presentation may be an establishing operation for challenging behavior (e.g., presenting one math problem at a time vs. presenting an entire math worksheet). The purpose of this article is to review the current literature on demand assessment procedures and to provide practitioners with a practical guide for conducting demand assessments in clinical settings. We provide a summary of our findings along with a brief description of the procedures used for implementing the indirect and direct demand assessments. Further, we created a decision-making guide to help practitioners select which type of demand assessment to conduct with their clients. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Behavior Analysis in Practice Springer Journals

Abstract

It is important for practitioners to first conduct an indirect demand assessment to identify appropriate stimuli to include during the direct demand assessment. Information obtained from an indirect demand assessment is useful not only for identifying which demands to evaluate during the direct assessment but also for selecting stimuli associated with each demand. Conducting an indirect demand assessment with caregivers provides practitioners the opportunity to identify whether specific demand stimuli are associated with more challenging behavior (e.g., writing with a pen vs. a pencil) and whether demand presentation may be an establishing operation for challenging behavior (e.g., presenting one math problem at a time vs. presenting an entire math worksheet). The purpose of this article is to review the current literature on demand assessment procedures and to provide practitioners with a practical guide for conducting demand assessments in clinical settings. We provide a summary of our findings along with a brief description of the procedures used for implementing the indirect and direct demand assessments. Further, we created a decision-making guide to help practitioners select which type of demand assessment to conduct with their clients.
