Differential Reinforcement as Treatment for Behavior Disorders: Procedural and Functional Variations.
Vollmer, Timothy R.; Iwata, Brian A.
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v13 n4 p393-417 Jul-Aug 1992
This paper reviews the functional properties and procedural variations of differential reinforcement for the reduction of behavior disorders in individuals with developmental disabilities. The paper proposes that limited success may be a result of the arbitrary relationship that exists between reinforcers and target behaviors when behavioral function is unknown and suggests several areas for future research.
