Modification of Verbal Behavior of the Mentally Impaired Elderly by Their Spouses.
Green, Glenn R.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v19 n4 p329-36 Win 1986
Two male stroke victims (ages 63 and 67) whose verbal disorders impaired social interactions and suggested the need for nursing home placement were treated by teaching spouses to reinforce positive and ignore undesired verbal responses. Problem behaviors were reduced sufficiently to permit continued home care, and alternative positive behaviors were increased. (Author/JW)
