Pelios, Lillian V.; MacDuff, Gregory S.; Axelrod, Saul
Education and Treatment of Children, v26 n1 p1-21 Feb 2003
This study evaluated a treatment package to improve on-task academic skills by three children with autism. Program components included delayed reinforcement for on-task and on-schedule responding, fading of instructional prompts and instructor's presence, unpredictable supervision, and response cost for off-task responding. On-task and on-schedule responding increased for all three children. Skills were also maintained and generalized. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
