McDonald, Mary E.; Hemmes, Nancy S.
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v24 n6 p453-65 Nov-Dec 2003
Level of spontaneous social initiating by three adult caregivers toward a youth with autism was studied during a program to increase the youth's level of social initiating. The youth's social initiations toward each adult were systematically reinforced. Frequency of spontaneous initiating toward the youth increased for each adult as the youth's frequency of initiating toward that adult increased. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
