The efficacy of a staff training procedure comprised of video review, role play, and verbal feedback to train three paraprofessionals who worked with adults with intellectual disabilities at an adult day center was evaluated. The paraprofessionals were trained to conduct a brief 5-min free operant preference assessment following a 10-step task analysis within the context of the staff training procedure. Results showed that all three paraprofessionals were able to accurately implement a free operant preference assessment with clients at the adult day center following training. Training was also shown to be time efficient, only requiring 3 to 7 training sessions, with each session lasting approximately 10 minutes in length, including set up of materials.
