We examined effects of increasing exposure to training trials on response acquisition. Academic objectives for 2 participants at a residential school for children with autism were selected for inclusion in the study due to a lack of progress. During baseline, teaching sessions were conducted once or twice a day, five days a week until response acquisition was not improving. Using a multiple baseline design, the participants encountered each objective in the treatment condition in a staggered design. During the treatment condition teaching sessions occurred multiple times in one hour during the day, five days a week. Results indicate increasing exposure to training trials increased the rate of response acquisition.
