Features of the Mand

ABA Training Video

This autism video discusses features of the mand in detail. The consequence of a mand is direct and specific reinforcement. This means that the speaker gets what he or she asks for or asks to be removed or terminated. So, for example, when a child mands for juice, they are rewarded with juice.

What is a Mand?

  • The consequence of a mand is direct and specific reinforcement. This means that the speaker gets what he or she asks for or asks to be removed or terminated.
  • The mand directly benefits the speaker. This is the only verbal operant where the speaker benefits from the behavior and the learner speaks first.
  • Mands are controlled by motivation. This may be the most important aspect to pay attention to if you want your learner to mand. When motivation is high, we will try hard to get our request heard.
