Effects of Vibratory, Edible, and Social Reinforcement on Performance of Institutionalized Mentally Retarded Individuals.
Ottenbacher, Kenneth; Altman, Reuben
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v89 n2 p201-04 Sep 1984
Data analysis revealed that response rates for low-MA students in verbal condition reinforcement and nonreinforcement phases were significantly lower than response rates for low-MA students in any phase of the edible or vibratory conditions. No significant difference in reinforcer effectiveness was observed across various phases for students in high-MA groups. (Author/CL)
