The Effect of a Token Reinforcement Program on the Reading Comprehension of a Learning Disabled Student.
Galbreath, Joy; Feldman, David
The relationship of reading comprehension accuracy and a contingently administered token reinforcement program used with an elementary level learning disabled student in the classroom was examined. The S earned points for each correct answer made after oral reading sessions. At the conclusion of the class he could exchange his points for rewards. Results after two baselines and two intervention periods on a reading series, "Reading for Concepts: Level A," indicated that the S substantially improved his reading comprehension accuracy during the token reinforcement program. Overall, he improved his comprehension accuracy 92% over the first baseline phase and 60% over the second baseline phase. (CL)
