An evaluation of differential reinforcement on appropriate toy skills

Principal Investigator:

The purpose of the current study will be to increase the play skills for six children with developmental disabilities, who display limited interest in toys in a free operant setting. It is hypothesized that differential reinforcement of appropriate play behaviors combined with fading will increase contact and engagement with toys.  This research study will be completed in partial fulfillment of Emily Sangkavasi's Master's Degree in Human Services Psychology, Applied Behavior Analysis track.
