Inducing Variability in Communicative Gestures Used by Severely Retarded Individuals.
Duker, Pieter C.; van Lent, Chretienne
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v24 n2 p379-86 Sum 1991
Consequences were withheld for high-rate gesture requests of 6 mentally handicapped individuals (ages 12-40), to increase the proportion of gestures used spontaneously. Results suggest that the teacher's nonresponding to high-rate spontaneous gesture requests increased individuals' use of previously taught but unused gesture requests. (Author/JDD)
