ABA Case studies

Prepare for the analysis questions by completing the following
for each case study:

·Provide a full and
accurate description of the target behavior for each case and the rationale for
selection.

·For each case, provide
a hypothesis of the reinforcement contingencies maintaining the behavior. Based
on this hypothesis, discuss why the previous interventions may not have been
successful.

·Next, use operant
conditioning techniques to provide an accurate and thorough behavior
modification for each case based on the hypothesis above. Be sure to discuss
this in the context of the use single-subject designs in behavior analysis and
how the individual serves as his or her own control.

·Finally, you will
discuss the assessment of each behavior modification plan by describing how you
will determine if the selected behavior modification plan was effective (be
sure to outline the dimension of behavior(s) you are measuring and how you will
make a data-based conclusions on the progress)

Each case covers the theories, concepts, and research that you
have learned about this term. Your written Assignment should consist of
information mainly from the two texts. If necessary you may use supplemental
readings. You may also use sources from the Library, but all supplementary
material should be from peer-reviewed behavior analytic journals only.

After reading each case and conducting the analysis as guided
above, please fully provide the information listed below.

Answers to the questions should be typed up in a Word document,
double-spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman font, follow all other APA
formatting and citation guidelines, and be submitted to the Unit 9 Assignment
Dropbox. Your answers should be 3 to 4 pages for each case in order to address
all required parts of the Assignment.

Case 1: The Case of Emily

1. Briefly recap the case and identify the most important target
behavior. Provide a clear definition and why it is important to target this
behavior.

2. Discuss which inadvertent reinforcement strategy may have
contributed to Emily’s school refusal and why. Formulate a hypothesis regarding
what intervention will result in a specific level and direction of desired
change in the target behavior

3. Choose an effective behavior modification program to help
Emily’s parents to help her improve her target behavior and to test your
previously stated hypothesis. Discuss why you chose that program and how you
would implement the strategy.

4. Discuss how you will monitor the program and analyze the
results. Make sure to include what you would consider to be a successful
intervention. Discuss changes you could make to the plan if the expected
outcome was not attained.

Case 2: The Case of Mr. Smith

1. Briefly recap the case and identify the most important target
behavior. Provide a clear definition and why it is important to target this
behavior.

2. Discuss why Mr. Smith’s previous interventions may not have
been successful. Formulate a hypothesis regarding what intervention will result
in a specific level and direction of desired change in the target behavior.

3. Choose an effective behavior modification program to help Mr.
Smith with his company and to test your previously stated hypothesis. Discuss
why you chose that program and how you would implement the strategy.

4. Discuss how you will monitor the program and analyze the
results. Make sure to include what you would consider to be a successful
intervention.

Make sure to use APA formatting and citation style to credit the
sources you use in your case study analysis. For additional information, refer
to the APA Quick Reference found in Course Resources or to the Writing Center.

You must credit authors when you:

·Summarize a concept,
theory, or research

·Use direct quotes from
the text or articles
