Refer to the Box 28.8 of the Cooper text on page 643, and select one of the case study examples that are described: “Withdrawn Wilamena,” “In a hurry Harry,” “Shouting Shelly,” or “Pestering Pete.” Using the 6 steps, design a behavior change plan where the learner is taught to use the strategy of self-recruiting for reinforcement. How does the process of teaching a student how to self-recruit for reinforcement promote the maintenance and generalization of behavior change in your example? Review any ethical, legal, individual, practical and/or social validity considerations to be aware of when designing your plan of change.

The following scenario will be used for designing an intervention to teach a student to self-recruit reinforcement (Cooper, Heron, & Heward, 2007, p. 643):

A design of a behavior change plan for Harry would be based on the six steps following the recommendations by Cooper, Heron, & Heward (2007). Harry will be taught to use the self...
