The Preference and Reinforcer Assessment is an application designed for children with autism to reduce their problematic behaviors and to teach them new skills through reinforcers. This app was designed by a BCBA and based on preference assessments used in ABA settings. It scientifically identifies motivating reinforcers for a student. With step by step instructions, the app calculates the percentage of times each preference was selected, creates a bar graph of each student’s final results and saves them by date, allowing for easy review of previous results.

Preferences, or suitability of different reinforcers often shift over time, so it’s valuable to continually perform preference assessments to make sure the stimuli used are still effective reinforcers. This app is a valuable tool for behavior analysts, teachers, and caregivers to use when identifying potent reinforcers for a student or a child.

Technical Specifications: 

Features include descriptions of all of the types of preference assessments, a timer to determine the end of a trial, a timer to indicate how long each item is engaged with, the ability to assign a color to each item, the ability to customize each assessment type and specific instructions and visuals to help set up and run the assessment.

This app is based on the principles of a scientific preference assessment as described in the 1996 article published in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis by DeLeon, I. G., & Iwata, B. A. “Evaluation of a multiple stimulus presentation format for assessing reinforcer preferences” 29, 519-533.
