Martin, Andrew S.; Morris, Jerry L.
Mental Retardation, v18 n2 p67-71 Apr 1980

Results show a statistically significant gain in production during training, and a larger gain during the second baseline period when the visual feedback was removed and clients were paid on the regular workshop schedule.
