The Effects of Auditory Tempo Changes on Rates of Stereotypic Behavior in Handicapped Children.
Christopher, R.; Lewis, B.
Mental Retardation and Learning Disability Bulletin, v12 n2 p105-14 1984
Rates of stereotypic behaviors in six severely/profoundly retarded children (eight to 15 years old) were observed during varying presentations of auditory beats produced by a metronome. Visual and statistical analysis of research results suggested a significant reaction to stimulus presentation. However, additional data following return-to-baseline suggest the initial reaction may have been due to a reactivity effect. (Author/CL)
