Acquisition of Manual Sign Use: Collateral Reduction of Maladaptive Behavior, and Factors Limiting Generalization.
Horner, Robert H.; Budd, Carolyn
Education and Training of the Mentally Retarded, v20 n1 p39-47 Mar 1985

Sign training in the corner of the classroom had no effect on generalization or maladaptive responses, while training in the natural setting was functionally related both to use of signs across the school day and dramatic reductions in grabbing and yelling.
