Presenting at the Bucharest International ABA Conference:
NCR-Improving life with movies and candies
Purpose of the study
This project aims to study the effectiveness of NCR application on a group to increase desirable behaviors and decrease undesirable behaviors in that group.
Non-contingent reinforcement NCR is an antecedent strategy to prevent behavior. The instructor delivers ongoing, brief reinforcement to a student independent of the student’s behavior. The reinforcement is provided to the student so that the problem behavior becomes unnecessary.
NCR can and should be implemented class/groups-wide. Instructors/teachers should make every effort to give plenty of non-contingent reinforcement to each student every day.
NCR can be used when clinicians first begin working with a client until more detailed interventions are created.
Purpose of the presentation
- Discuss and study the history of the NCR procedure in the recent literature;
- Discuss the implementation of a NCR procedure for different groups;
- Conclusions and recommendations;
- The IMPACT of the study-indirect effects.
