Effectiveness of DRO tokens in decreasing disruptive behavior in the classroom with five multiply handicapped children (pages 65-75)


In this study the effectiveness of differential reinforcement of other behavior (DRO) with tokens was assessed in the treatment of various topographies of disruptive behavior in the classroom with five children who were multiply handicapped. Prior to implementation of the treatment, reinforcer assessment was conducted to identify items to be used as back‐up reinforcers. Data were analyzed using time‐series analysis. Results show that DRO tokens were highly effective in decreasing disruptive behavior of all participants. ©1997 by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
