Operant behavior is emitted and Respondent behavior is elicited; very important ABA technical language. Just as important is that prompts are faded and reinforcement schedules are leaned. ABA Implements have a tendency to say that reinforcement schedules are faded…UHG!
“To distinguish an operant from an elicited reflex, we say that the operant response is “emitted.” (It might be better to say simply that it appears, since emission may imply that behavior exists inside the organism and then comes out. But the word need not mean ejection; light is not in the hot filament before it is emitted.)” (p. 58)
