Many different teaching strategies have been assessed to help increase the behavioral repertoires of individuals with developmental disabilities and Autism. This study compares the effects of positive reinforcement and negative reinforcement during skill acquisition. The results indicate that although more sight words were acquired during the negative reinforcement condition, when using a multi-response repetition error correction procedure, there was a higher rate of inappropriate session behavior.
