Coleman, Carrie L.; Holmes, Peter A.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v31 n4 p687-90 Win 1998
Noncontingent escape (NCE) was used to reduce disruptive behavior in three children (age 4) with autism during regularly scheduled speech therapy sessions. Results showed rapid decreases in disruptive behavior and accompanying increases in compliance across children. Findings suggest that speech therapists can effectively implement NCE. (Author/CR)
