Latency has received a high level of interest in the behavior analytic community as a measure which may provide deeper information around idiosyncratic variables related to operant behavior. A number of research studies have demonstrated that latency measures may be comparable to response rate as a measure, and also be predictive of other factors of interest when conducting functional analyses (FA), identifying response classes, and during skill acquisition instruction (Call, Pabico, & Lomas, 2009; Thomason-Sassi, Iwata, Neidert, & Roscoe, 2011). In the current presentation, the author will show how the use of latency may contribute to behavior analytic practice during assessment and intervention, and provide a model for when and how to utilize latency in each of these capacities to drive clinical decision-making.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this presentation the participants will be able to:

  1. Define latency and describe the types of ways latency can be used in clinical practice
  2. Compare and contrast data analysis outcomes when using latency versus other measures (e.g., frequency, trial-by-trial, duration)
  3. Discuss the ways in which latency measures can impact an understanding of responses classes of behavior, changes in motivation during instruction, and elements of stimulus control
  4. Identify idiosyncratic variables in data patterns when latency measures are used and discuss how the analysis of those variables contribute to clinical decision making
