Contextual Control of Problem Behavior in Students with Severe Disabilities.
Haring, Thomas G.; Kennedy, Craig H.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v23 n2 p235-43 Sum 1990
This study found that, in a task context, differential reinforcement of other behavior (DRO) effectively reduced problem behavior and increased task performance of 2 adolescents with severe disabilities (ages 15 and 19), whereas a time-out procedure was ineffective. In a leisure context, time-out was effective while DRO was ineffective. (Author/JDD)
