Watters, Robert G.; Wood, Dodie E.
Journal of Special Education, v17 n1 p27-35 Spr 1983
Seven autistic and other severely dysfunctional five- to seven-year-old boys were each given a soft, hard, and wheeled toy in random sequence. The soft toy evoked more inappropriate play behaviors and high levels of self-stimulation across subjects than either the hard or the wheeled toys. (Author/MC)
