A Response to "The Negative Effects of Positive Reinforcement in Teaching Children with Developmental Delays."
Ward, Phillip C.
Exceptional Children, v61 n5 p489-92 Mar-Apr 1995
This article responds to a study by Gerald Biederman and others, which concluded that verbal reinforcement in combination with interactive modeling strategies may produce confusion in children with language/learning difficulties. The article contends that a functional relationship cannot be claimed for the study's variables because measurement tactics used are unable to document reinforcement. (JDD)
