Taylor, Ian; O'Reilly, Mark F.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v30 n1 p43-58 Spr 1997
A study of seven adults with mild mental retardation investigated whether nonverbal behavior was under the control of covert rules and whether verbal reports of these rules were functionally equivalent to the covert rules that control nonverbal behavior. Results indicated self-instructions, when used as external instructions, produced the desired behavior change. (CR)
