2013 Applied Research: Kara Wunderlich
University of Florida
Kara’s research interests include methods to program for generalization within evidence-based instructional practice. Currently, research is being conducted to evaluate and compare serial and concurrent tact training methods and their effects on generalization with both typically developing and intellectually disabled children. The primary aims of this investigation are to identify the most effective teaching method to promote a generalized tact repertoire and compare the acquisition of generalized tact responses between these two populations. Additional research interests include treatments of problematic behavior maintained by automatic reinforcement, such as response interruption and redirection for automatically reinforced vocal stereotypy. Kara is also conducting research on factors affecting relative reinforcer efficacy and functional analyses of problem behavior.
