This study replicates and extends the work of Fjellstedtand Sulzer-Azaroff (1973)and Tiger, Bouxsein, and Fisher (2007). The present study investigated the effects of a token system to decrease the latency to respond to instructions by a 16-year-old female with an acquired brain injury. Amultiple baseline design across behaviors was used. Latency was measured by timing the interval between a given verbal instruction and the completion of 7 different behaviors. The results showed that the addition of a token system was successful in reducing the latency to respond to instructions across all behaviors.
