People diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder may engage in a narrow range of behavior within and across contexts. As a result, creating environments, designing curriculum, and programming contingencies that foster and encourage appropriate variations in behavior can be an important part of a comprehensive behavior-analytic intervention package. This presentation will discuss mechanisms and methods that directly and indirectly result in varied responding, such as programming for response generalization and direct reinforcement of response variability. Practical considerations, strengths, and limitations of each will also be discussed.
