Using Aberrant Behaviors as Reinforcers for Autistic Children.
Charlop, Marjorie H.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v23 n2 p163-81 Sum 1990
Three experiments assessed the efficacy of various reinforcers to increase correct task responding in a total of 10 autistic children, aged 6-9. Of the reinforcers used (stereotypy, delayed echolalia, perseverative behavior, and food), task performance was highest with opportunities to engage in aberrant behaviors, and lowest with edible reinforcers.
