Behavioral Cusp

Cusp behaviors are chosen as goals when possible.  They are behaviors that significantly expand a client’s repertoire to new settings, new contingencies and new stimulus controls.  Learning to read is a cusp behavior that gains access to a whole set of new learning opportunities, for example.  Also, a baby learning to crawl is a behavioral cusp.  This skill allows the baby to access the world in a whole new way.
