Nabeyama, Bobby; Sturmey, Peter
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v43 n2 p341-345 Sum 2010
The study analyzed the effects of self-recording and behavioral skills training on guarding responses of 3 staff members while they assisted 3 students with multiple disabilities to ambulate. The intervention increased the percentage of correct posture and guarding responses and the distance that students ambulated. These effects generalized when staff taught new students.
