dc.description.abstract Prompting and prompt fading techniques are widely used in the field of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), often in conjunction with other behaviour modification techniques. Within the literature, there are specific guidelines as to how and when particular prompt and prompt fading techniques are useful and most effective. However, there is no research on the use of these evidence-based methods in practice, nor tools that pulls on the information from the researches to allow for clinicians to engage in evidence-based practice. The current study focused on the development of a scale which would help applied behaviour analysts make an evidence-based decision on which prompt and prompt fading method to use with their client/s. The current study is divided into two parts. Study 1 focused on identifying the gaps in the literature and understanding how Board-Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBA) use prompting and prompt fading techniques. The results were analysed using thematic analysis and showed that often BCBAs make choices based on the client and the particular skill they are trying to teach. Study 2 focused on assessing the content validity of a scale created to help clinicians identify the most appropriate prompt and prompt fading strategies for the specific skill and learner. Results showed that the overall content validity index for the scale was 0.85 (focus group) and 0.75 (expert panel). Item by item content validity was also calculated. The limitations and future implications of the studies were discussed. en
