Recent Applications in Stimulus Equivalence-Based Instruction and Practice Tips (ON DEMAND)
Stimulus Equivalence-Based Instruction was first introduced and used by Murray Sidman (1971) to teach reading comprehension to a young man with microcephaly and intellectual disability. Since then, equivalence-based instruction has been applied to many teaching situations and contexts from teaching math (Fisher, 2005), geography (LeBlanc, Miguel, Cummings, Goldsmith, & Carr, 2003), statistics (Critchfield & Fineup, 2010), art history (Aguayo & Garcia, 2005), second languages (Ramirez & Rehfeldt, 2009), etc. This presentation will review a variety of recent application of equivalence-based instructions from the research literature, as well as offer new and innovative uses for this technology. In addition, tips will be suggested for using this technology in practice.
- Participants will be able to define stimulus equivalence.
- Participants will be able to list at least 3 recent applications of equivalence-based instruction from the literature.
- Participants will be able to describe the steps and components of equivalence-based instruction.
