Durand, V. Mark; Carr, Edward G.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v24 n2 p251-64 Sum 1991
Three mentally retarded students (ages 9-12) who exhibited challenging behaviors to escape from academic demands and to receive social attention were taught alternative assistance-seeking and attention-getting phrases. Data indicated that the intervention reduced challenging behavior. The results transferred across settings, and were maintained 18 to 24 months later. (Author/JDD)
