A final evaluation of the importance of her work will probably depend on the success of these attempts to generalise it to other individuals. The model rival technique involves two trainers, one to give instructions, and one to model correct and incorrect responses and to act as the student's rival for the trainer's attention; the model and trainer also exchange roles so that the student sees that the process is fully interactive.
The parrot, in the role of student, tries to reproduce the correct behavior.
The use of this model rival technique has resulted in Alex identifying objects by color, shape, number and material at about the level of chimpanzees and dolphins. His language abilities are equivalent to those of a 2-year old child and he has the problem solving skills of a 6-year old. Alex is learning the alphabet, can count up to six objects and is working on identifying objects from photographs. Pepperberg counters critics' claims that Alex has been taught a script by explaining that the controls and tests she uses make it impossible for him simply to recite words when she asks questions.

According to Pepperberg, Alex must understand labels and objects to answer her questions. Pepperberg started The Alex Foundation , which supports Pepperberg and her team's research. Funds are donated to the foundation and then are used to help care for her parrots and to document her work. She receives funding only through the foundation - she has no federal funding.
The Alex Foundation also sells parrot-related gifts to help funding efforts.
