Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v30 n2 p239-49 Sum 1997
A study of 2 boys (ages 11 and 16) with mental retardation and destructive behaviors investigated whether alternative stimuli identified through a choice assessment would substitute for attention in a noncontingent reinforcement procedure. Both continuous noncontingent access to attention and to the identified tangible item reduced destructive behavior. (Author/CR)
