Paired Choice Assessment
In this video you will see an instructor run a paired choice preference assessment for an early learner with autism. With this type of assessment, usually six items are selected. The items are presented two at a time and are rotated until each have been paired with all other options. The purpose of this assessment is to identify which preferred items or activities may serve as potential reinforcers. Typically, items rated 80% or higher are suspected to serve as reinforcers.
