In such cases, the new behavior may be established using continuous reinforcement but is then gradually shifted to an intermittent schedule (where every response is not reinforced) so that it is more difficult for the child to discriminate the treatment from the non treatment environment. , Koegel & Rincover, 1977) and maintenance of treatment gains, allowing naturally occurring intermittent reinforcers to "take over" in natural environments. , Stokes & Baer, 1977). Here it is important that the reinforcers used in the training setting are similar to those that are available in generalization settings and that the behaviors taught are those likely to earn these reinforcers.

Treatment gains then generalized from the clinic to the home environment. A related procedure, training sufficient exemplars, involves training sufficient behavior examples or in sufficient settings to lead to generalization across other, untrained, examples. Schreibman and Carr (1978) taught children who exhibited echolalia to use the generalized response "I don't know" when confronted with a verbal stimulus to which they could not respond. ") until the children would answer "I don't know" to new, untrained examples.

We would be unlikely to pick up a phone and say "Hello" if the phone were not ringing because a silent phone does not promise the consequence of someone talking to us. Similarly, all of our operant behavior is under the control of these antecedents and by manipulating them, we can alter the behavior. Touchette, MacDonald, and Langer (1985) provided an excellent and important example of how the severely aggressive and self-injurious behavior of developmentally disabled individuals could be effectively controlled and eliminated by manipulating antecedents.
