Literature Review Outline

 

Introduction

· Extension to Carnett et al. (2014) study

· Study the effects of preservative interest based token economies on task behavior

· Research is warranted to find the most effective method for on task behavior.

· Carnett Amarie, Raulston Tracy, Lang Russell, Tostanoski Amy, Lee Allyson, Sigafoos Jeff, & Machalicek Wendy. (2014). Effects of a Perseverative Interest-Based Token Economy on Challenging and On-Task Behavior in a Child with Autism. Journal of Behavioral Education23(3), 368–377.

Conclusion

· Main findings: Studies have shown that including objects of interest in a clients token board will increase engagement.

· This study replicates past research conducted by Carnett et al. (2014) but also extends it by using multiple participants.

· The purpose of this study he purpose of this capstone is to extend the work of Carnett et al. (2014) and Charlop-Christy and Haymes (1998) and compare the effects of a token economy that does not include a child’s perseverative interest versus a token economy that includes the child’s perseverative interest on on-task behavior

· I hypothesize that the token economy with the clients perseverative interest incorporated in the token economy will increase on task behavior.
