Evaluation of Reinforcer Preferences for Profoundly Handicapped Students.
Wacker, David P.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v18 n2 p173-78 Sum 1985
Five students (13-18 years old) classified as profoundly/multiply handicapped were trained to use microswitches to indicate reinforcer preferences. When the microswitches activated the devices during training, a substantial increase in the duration of motoric responding occurred for all students. In addition, some students performed differentially across devices, suggesting that they had reinforcer preferences. (Author/CL)
