Extinction of Self-Injurious Escape Behavior with and without Instructional Fading.
Zarcone, Jennifer R.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v26 n3 p353-60 Fall 1993
This study of the treatment of self-injurious behavior (SIB), involving three individuals with developmental disabilities, found that an extinction condition in which SIB no longer produced escape reduced SIB to the criterion in fewer sessions than did extinction plus fading, in which instruction frequency was initially reduced to zero and then gradually faded back in.
