Structured preference assessments have long been used to identify reinforcers that promote positive behaviours and acquisition of new skills in a variety of contexts. Preference assessments can also be used to help solve a variety of problems that may arise when providing behavioural treatment in school, home and community settings. This presentation will include a brief overview of common structured preference assessments, followed by a series of examples illustrating how these assessments can be used in unique ways to address common challenges in providing home, school, and community-based treatment for individuals with developmental disabilities.
