  22. A procedure in which the clinician provided an auditory stimulus to be imitated by the client. This procedure is typically used in the early phases of training a response that is not client’s repertoire or exists at a very low level of mastery
  23. A response by the client that is relatively immediate reproduction of an auditory stimulus (the model) provided by the clinician
  24. A procedure used by the clinician that may supplement either imitative or spontaneous response by the client
  25. A procedure used by the clinician that involves commenting on the topic of a child’s utterance but not necessarily using the same words
  26. Any event that follows a response and increases its frequency or strength – the probability it will occur again under similar circumstances
  27. Transferring /maintaining the behavior to a variety stimuli settings and audiences
  28. Creating a behavior that is infrequent or nonexistent
