#7. Which of the following assessments would likely involve standardized scoring and normative data comparisons?
Standardized assessments, like the BSITD, have specific scoring procedures and compare individual performance to established norms for age or developmental level. Functional analyses, skill checklists, and preference assessments typically use non-standardized procedures and data interpretation within the specific context of the individual’s behaviors.
#8. You are analyzing a graph of your client’s vocal stereotypy behavior across weeks of intervention. The line on the graph is consistently declining. What does this trend likely indicate?
A downward trend on a graph of behavior frequency (e.g., occurrences per week) generally signifies a reduction in the target behavior and suggests the intervention is having a positive effect.
#9. Which of the following is NOT a primary goal of behavior reduction?
Complete elimination may not always be realistic or necessary. Focus is on reducing the behavior to a manageable level and building adaptive skills.
#10. Which behavior reduction technique involves removing a desirable stimulus following the unwanted behavior?

#20. You are asked to provide pro bono (free) services to a non-profit organization. What should you consider before accepting the engagement?

#21. You are approached by a potential client who wishes to remain anonymous. What are your ethical responsibilities in this situation?
Anonymitous client relationships raise ethical concerns regarding transparency and accountability. While not always prohibited, discussing potential risks and limitations with the client is crucial for informed decision-making and upholding ethical obligations.

#24. Your client shows initial improvement in a new communication skill (e.g., asking questions) during training sessions, but struggles to use it spontaneously in everyday situations. How would you address this and promote generalization?
Generalization requires practice in real-world contexts. While additional training (A) may be beneficial, role-playing (B) can be artificial, and external rewards (D) may not always be available or maintain long-term use. Scheduling specific opportunities for practicing the skill in everyday situations with fading support (C) provides the necessary experience and feedback for naturalization.
#25. You are teaching your client a complex multi-step skill like preparing a meal. They consistently master individual steps but have difficulty transitioning smoothly between them and maintaining organization throughout the process. How would you support their independent execution of the entire sequence?
While chaining (B) is valuable for initial skill acquisition, relying on prompts (D) may hinder independent execution. Dividing the task further (A) may not address sequencing issues. Self-monitoring tools like checklists (C) empower the client to track their progress, plan transitions, and manage the overall organization of the multi-step skill.
#26. Your client exhibits high distractibility during skill acquisition sessions, making it difficult for them to focus and attend to instructions. How would you modify the learning environment and instruction delivery to improve attention and engagement?
Distractibility requires strategies to address focus and energy levels. Reducing sessions (A) may not be beneficial, and external rewards (D) may not address the underlying issue. Sensory-motor activities and breaks (B) can help re-energize the client and improve their ability to pay attention, while visuals (C) can support understanding but may not directly address distractibility.
#27. You are concerned your client may be experiencing anxiety or apprehension during certain skill acquisition tasks. How would you identify and address their emotional state to create a more comfortable and productive learning environment?
Data analysis (A) may not reveal personal feelings, and direct conversations (C) may not be suitable for all clients. Observing nonverbal cues (B) allows you to identify subtle signs of anxiety and adjust the learning environment or approach to reduce pressure and create a more comfortable learning experience. Task adjustments (D) can be helpful but may not directly address the emotional state.
#28. A client who has difficulty with social skills might benefit from practicing with a(n)
