An Unexpected Effect: Restitution Maintains Object Throwing.
Jensen, Mary
Education and Treatment of Children, v11 n3 p252-56 Aug 1988
This study examined effects of restitution on object throwing behavior of an adolescent male with severe mental retardation. Restitution was shown to maintain throwing behavior. When the subject was not forced to pick up what he threw (no restitution), throwing dropped to zero and was maintained at a very low rate. (Author/PB)
