Meinhold, Patricia M.; Mulick, James A.
Mental Retardation, v28 n2 p67-75 Apr 1990
This article uses preliminary data from 51 direct-care staff members and approximately 190 residents of a facility for nonambulatory individuals with profound mental retardation, to illustrate the roles of social, ecological, and regulatory contingencies of reinforcement and their potential counterhabilitative effects on residents. Results indicate a need for further research to better serve residents of such facilities. (Author/PB)
