    C. Contingency contracting
    Explanation
    Contingency contracting is a procedure commonly used by applied behavior analysts. It involves the creation of a written agreement between the analyst and the individual receiving treatment, outlining specific behaviors and consequences.

This perspective suggests that human behavior can be predicted and explained by studying these external factors and their impact on individuals.

    Correct Answer
    D. The right to services whoe overriding goal is personal welfare
    Explanation
    Jay's teacher has ignored the ethical rule of "the right to services whose overriding goal is personal welfare." By restricting Jay's use of his augmentative communication device during instructional time, the teacher is not prioritizing Jay's personal welfare and his ability to effectively communicate. This restriction may hinder Jay's learning and social interactions, ultimately affecting his overall well-being and development. The teacher should consider alternative strategies to address the concerns of distraction while still ensuring Jay's right to effective communication and personal welfare.

    Explanation
    Mr. Martin is ignoring the ethical rule of the right to services whose overriding goal is personal welfare. By writing Frankie's IEP goals, objectives, and behavior management plan before the IEP meeting, Mr. Martin is not considering the input and collaboration of other team members, including Frankie and his family. This goes against the principle of ensuring that the services provided prioritize the individual's personal welfare and are based on a comprehensive assessment and collaborative decision-making process.

By relying on evidence-based practices, teachers can make informed decisions and increase the chances of success in behavior change programs.
