Teaching Self-Control to Small Groups of Dually Diagnosed Adults.
Dixon, Mark R.; Holcomb, Sharon
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v33 n4 p611-14 Win 2000
A study used a progressive delay procedure to teach self-control to six adults with mental retardation. At baseline, participants chose an immediate smaller reinforcer rather than a larger delayed reinforcer. Progressive increases in work requirements for gaining access to a larger reinforcer resulted in participants selecting larger delayed reinforcers. (Contains three references.) (Author/CR)
