Huguenin, Nancy H.
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v21 n2 p93-113 Mar-Apr 2000
A study investigated whether computer touch-screen technology could improve the attentional skills of three adolescents with severe mental retardation. Initially, prior reinforcement contingencies of individual stimuli failed to control their attention. Extended exposure to single stimulus training and conflict compounds, however, alleviated stimulus overselectivity and improved attentional skills. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
