An Analysis of Reinforcer Substitutability Using Object Manipulation and Self-Injury as Competing Responses.
Shore, Bridget A.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v30 n1 p21-41 Spr 1997
Three experiments involving three adults with profound mental retardation whose self-injurious behavior (SIB) was maintained by automatic reinforcement, examined interactions between stereotypic SIB and the manipulation of objects that appeared to provide substitutable sources of reinforcement. Attempts to reduce SIB using the preferred objects as reinforcers were unsuccessful. (CR)
