Gena, Angeliki; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v29 n3 p291-304 Fall 1996
A study of 4 youths (ages 11-18) with autism examined the effectiveness of teaching appropriate affective behavioral responses. Participants were described by teachers as having flat and inappropriate affect. Treatment consisted of modeling, prompting, and reinforcement. The combination of an error-correction procedure and contingent delivery of tokens produced appropriate affective responses. Evidence of generalization was also found. (CR)
