Using an ABAB withdrawal design, a study investigated effects of a simple peer-prompting procedure on reducing or eliminating annoying/disruptive sounds made by a 13-year-old boy with developmental disabilities included in a general eighth-grade classroom. Peer prompting reduced his inappropriate noises, and follow-up data indicate the improvement persisted five weeks later. (Author/CR)
