Play Equipment Utilization and Its Effects on Peer Social Interaction For an Asocial 4-Year Old Female Subject.
Wishon, Phillip; And Others
Teacher reinforcement of indoor play equipment utilization was employed as a procedure to increase the peer social interaction of an asocial four-year-old female child. Touching peers, using peers' names, verbalizations, solitary or parallel manipulation, cooperative construction, and cooperative thematic play were dependent variables. Treatment phases were effective in increasing the behaviors with an accompanying reduction in the child's duration of solitary or parallel manipulation. Reinforced play intervention appears to be an effective means of increasing social interaction among preschoolers. (Author/BEF)
