Heitzman, A. J.; Alimena, M. J.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v85 n4 p176-77 Apr 1991
Differential reinforcement of low rates of responding was used to reduce the disruptive behaviors of a blind 12-year-old boy with a learning disability. The subject earned reinforcers by not exceeding the established criterion of disruptive behaviors. An overall 88 percent reduction in target behaviors was observed across a 26-day period. (Author/DB)
