Behavior Modification for Children with Autistic Tendencies; Study Guide for a Videotaped Series.
Ackerman, Arthur; Dirr, Peter J.
The study guide accompanies a series of 28 videotaped programs designed to provide teachers, teacher aides and parents with an understanding of children with autistic tendencies and of how behavior modification techniques might be used to train such children. Synopses of each program and each program segment and a few questions intended to stimulate the reader's consideration of the topics are presented for demonstrations of autistic behaviors (such as echolalia and perserveration), of techniques (such as use of positive reinforcers), and for three case studies.
