Most behavior analysts understand the concept of generalization; there are three types of generalization – stimulus, response, and maintenance. Programming for generality, however, is one of the least understood areas of behavioral programming. One of the reasons may be that programming for generalization is inherently an instructional design process and behavior analysts are not typically trained in the area of instructional design. This workshop teaches how to program instructional sequences relevant to the generality promoting strategies outlined in Stokes & Baer’s Animplicit technology of generalization(1977).

The first half of the workshop is didactic with examples of each strategy gleaned from the presenter’s personal cases and research studies. The second half is hands on.Handouts will be provided and include reproducible forms that can be used when writing a generalization plan. Participants are encouraged to bring a case with them (e.g., behavior plan & assessment report) to work on during the second half of the workshop.


Sessions need to beevidence-based in order to be acceptable for CE credit.  If selected, each topic will requirepeer-reviewed support to substantiate the presentation.

Three learning objectives for your presentation:

  1. Explain the three basic processes of generalization.
  2. Explain the procedure for each generality promoting strategy
  3. Describe an example for each generality promoting strategy to illustrate its application
  4. Design a generalization plan using at least one generalization promoting strategy.

    TN NADD is dedicated to providing continuing education opportunities for our attendees.  Please keep in mind that presenters will be asked for further documentation as per the requirements of the continuing education agency for their discipline. Sessions need to be evidence-based in order to be acceptable for CE credit.
