Benefits of NCR
Directly affects response-reinforcer relationship rather than overpowering it, higher rates of reinforcer delivery than other procedures (making it a more positive procedure), produces less extinction induced behavior than other treatments, works with a variety of topographies and functions, doesn’t always have to be function based (can be arbitrary reinforcer)
Limitations of NCR
does not teach alternative behavior, risk of adventitious reinforcement
NCR rate of reinforcement
initially higher than rate produced by problem behaviorAs behavior improves, thin schedule
