Oke, N. Jennifer; Schreibman, Laura
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v20 n4 p479-97 Dec 1990
When two nonhandicapped peers of an autistic five-year old were trained to initiate social interaction, social interaction increased and then dramatically decreased in a reversal phase, and no decrease in the autistic child's disruptive behaviors was observed. When the autistic child was trained to initiate interaction, social interaction increased and disruptive behavior decreased. (Author/JDD)
