mixed verbal operant training, language acquisition, mands, tacts, developmental disabilities
The current study aimed to systematically replicate and extend previous research on single and mixed verbal operant training. The acquisition of mands and tacts was examined with a 4-yearold boy enrolled in a special education classroom across three different training conditions: mand-only, tact-only, and mand-tact. Mixed verbal operant training (i.e., mand-tact training) produced faster acquisition for mands but not for tacts.
