Stimulus (Instructional) Fading during Extinction of Self-Injurious Escape Behavior.
Pace, Gary M.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v26 n2 p205-12 Sum 1993
Assessment of self-injurious behavior (SIB) in three individuals with developmental disabilities revealed that the behavior was an escape response maintained by negative reinforcement. Treatment consisted of extinction plus instructional fading and resulted in immediate and large reductions in SIB behaviors. Maintenance occurred as instruction returned to baseline. (Author/DB)
