Bihm, Elson M.; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v22 n1 p83-93 Mar 1992
Analysis of staff perceptions of classes of reinforcers and aberrant behaviors of 480 people with predominantly severe or profound mental retardation suggested 8 classes of reinforcers (e.g., consumable, play) and 5 classes of maladaptive behaviors (irritability, lethargy, stereotypy, hyperactivity, and inappropriate speech). Each class of psychopathology was related to a unique set of predictors. (Author/DB)
