Producing Speech Use in Nonverbal Autistic Children by Reinforcing Attempts.
Koegel, Robert L.; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v18 n4 p525-38 Dec 1988
The study compared the effectiveness of two different reinforcement conditions to teach speech to severely handicapped nonverbal autistic children (N=4). Findings indicated that reinforcing speech attempts was more effective than reinforcing motor speech sounds in terms of both children's interest and behavior and of improvements in children's speech production.
