I read this ABA research study in an education journal. The researchers were interested in the effects of classroom seating on the attending behavior of children with Aspergers disorder. They had attending well defined as looking at or manipulating task materials, talking with another child about the task, and so on. On several occasions, the researchers had the teachers change the kids seating arrangements from the usual four children per table to two children per table. They described every detail of how and when they did this. The teachers reported that each time the kids were seated two per table, they were either MUCH MORE ATTENTIVE or SOMEWHAT MORE ATTENTIVE. What dimension of ABA (Baer, Wolf & Risley article) appears to be deficient in this study?

a. Behavioral

b. Applied

c. Technological

d. Analytic
