Environmental Maintenance of Retarded Behavior: A Behavioral Perspective
Thurman, S. Kenneth
Education, 97, 2, 121-5, Win 76

Maintenance of these behaviors is attributed to positive reinforcement, avoidance behavior, and contingency schedules. Several examples of the maintenance effects of each of these paradigms are given. (Author)
