Episode 143 - Stimulus Equivalence
By popular demand (of Diana), we’re talking all about stimulus equivalence. After drawing multiple pictures to remind ourselves of the inner workings of this powerful process, we dive into relevant research from three generations: a Sidman original, a go-go 90’s extension, and a practical example of stimulus equivalence in special education.
