Effects of Differential Negative Reinforcement on Disruption and Compliance.
Marcus, Bethany A.; Vollmer, Timothy R.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v28 n2 p229-30 Sum 1995
The effects on compliance of two types of differential negative reinforcement (DNR) were studied with a five-year-old girl with moderate mental retardation and a history of severe disruption. Escape from instructional trials was either contingent on a communicative behavior or compliance. Behaviors improved with both interventions, but compliance rarely occurred during the communication DNR. (Author/SW)
