When learning new skills, children will habitually make errors. Often, following these errors is the
implementation of an error correction procedure that is either effortful (i.e. overcorrection), and/or a
form of punishment (i.e. response cost). Learners may interpret these error correction procedures as
aversive. Recent studies looked at transitioning from rich (more-preferred items) to lean (less-preferred
items) as a form of error correction. The current study used an alternating treatments design to evaluate
the effects of transiting from earning more-preferred items to less-preferred items as a form of error
correction on increasing tacting of sight words.
