The terms stimulus, response, and stimulus control are derived from the experimental literature. The term "prompt" arose within the applied field. There are many conceptual and logical errors in how trainers use these terms that often lead to ineffectual lessons. Similar problems can be found regarding error correction strategies and those that are described as "errorless." We will review many popular teaching strategies, including fading, most-to-least, least-to-most, etc., several error-correction strategies and a host of strategies described as "errorless teaching." The goal is to shake up many long-held and cherished beliefs about common teaching strategies.

Participants will be able to

  • Define stimulus control and its importance in lesson design
  • Distinguish between prompt and cue
  • Describe the logical difference between fading and most-to-least (or least-to-most) strategies
  • Describe how stimulus control is important for error correction
  • Describe advantages and disadvantages related to "errorless learning"
