- Evidence-Based Practice (Empirically based procedures)
- Outcomes-Based Practice (Consequences)

target behaviors that are observable (can be seen, counted, defined) and has inter-observer agreement among different clinicians/scientists who observe or measure the same event.

Applicability of treatment procedures in a wide range of situations involving other clients and clinicians.
Group of responses created by the same or functionally similar antecedent and consequence contingencies. (Not necessarily structurally similar responses)
