Token reinforcement of verbal responses controlled by temporally-removed verbal stimuliThe Analysis of Verbal Behavior (2015)
In the present study we examined the effects of token reinforcement on strengthening the convergent control of immediate and temporally removed verbal stimuli over the verbal behavior of three school-age children with autism who showed specific deficits in intraverbal responding. Throughout the study participants were systematically introduced to a series of visitors to a university-based autism center, and subsequently probed for information about the visitor they had most recently met. Results show that contingent token reinforcement was effective at conditioning the control of temporally removed verbal stimuli.
