Abstract

A pivotal skill of practice involves engineering emergent learning. Toward this end, graduate training in applied behavior analysis must emphasize concepts of and research on stimulus relations in order for practitioners to develop these skills. . . Keywords Stimulus equivalence Derived stimulus relations Emergent learning Graduate training programs in applied behavior analysis but they have one thing in common: Time available (ABA) vary widely in terms of goals, staffing, institutional for changing behavior is finite, and the client repertoires context, and student characteristics, but they all have some- that must be built up in order to achieve optimal func- thing in common: Time available for training future practi- tioning are essentially unbounded. It is therefore of par- tioners is finite, and the repertoires practitioners need to func- amount importance that ABA graduate training empha- tion optimally are essentially unbounded. It is never possible size skills that will help future professionals make the to teach all that students will one day need to know, and thus most of the very limited time they will have to work judicious decisions are required about what to teach in the with their clients. available time.
