Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v32 n4 p451-66 Win 1999
This study evaluated self-control and impulsivity in two nine-year- old males with severe developmental disabilities and behavior disorders. Functional analyses suggested that aggression was reinforced by food access. A differential reinforcement procedure to reinforce appropriate mands was implemented. Although aggression occurred when it produced more immediate but smaller reinforcers, the subjects displayed self-control when the delay to reinforcement was signaled. (Contains references.)
