All mands are multiply controlled. While there is a clear benefit to establishing a broad repertoire of basic mand skills for items that are present, a full mand repertoire requires a broad range of skills that involve multiply controlled responses. This session will include a description of the variables that control mand responses across a range of conditions and provide guidance on effective instructional procedures. It will include a review of strategies to integrate mand training across the day and specific protocol for teaching tact to mand transfers, yes-no mands, interrupted chain procedures, and mands for information. The importance of shaping appropriate expansion of mand forms will be reviewed.
