Response-Contingent Learning in Profoundly Handicapped Infants: A Social Systems Perspective.
Dunst, Carl J.; And Others
Analysis and Intervention in Developmental Disabilities, v5 n1-2 p33-47 1985
Response-contingent learning capabilities of six profoundly retarded, multiply handicapped infants were examined using an operant conditioning paradigm. Results showed that infants learned criterion behavior although conditioning latencies were likely to occur when the children were required to produce free-operant responding. Findings are discussed from a social systems perspective. (Author/CL)
