Acquisition of Appropriate Social Behaviors in a Fourth Grade Student through the Use of Positive Reinforcement and Response Cost.
Wade, David
A 10-year-old boy with inappropriate social behavior was placed in a program of positive reinforcement and response cost. The boy earned plastic coins for good behavior and lost coins for inappropriate behavior. Rewards for given levels of earnings included extra recess time and field trips. Inappropriate behaviors decreased from a mean of 6.8 times per session to 0.9 times during the first 10 days of intervention, and 2.1 times per session during the first 14 days of intervention. (LS)
