Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v15 n1 p17-40 Spr 1982
Findings of the three experiments indicated that normal children can successfully teach social responses (i.e., delayed imitation, cooperative play, and verbalization of positive comments) to withdrawn mentally retarded peers (8 to 13 years old). Effects generalized across stimulus and response conditions, while the levels of responding were maintained after the intervention. (Author)
