Abstract

We used a changing criterion design to evaluate the extent to which differential negative reinforcement of other behavior increased compliance with wearing a medical alert bracelet for a young boy with autism. Results showed the duration for which the participant wore the bracelet systematically increased across trials from 5 s to 7 hr over several weeks.
