Summary

The report describes a 3-year project which utilized the techniques of experimental psychology and the principles of operant conditioning to gain in the understanding and treatment of autistic and schizophrenic children. Included are discussions of the autistic child, the project itself, arbitrary and natural reinforcement, the setting and therapeutic procedures, and training procedures and materials used in the clinical training program for staff. Courses in teaching principles of reinforcement and in principles of behavior, both by Fred S. Keller, are provided. The classification and description of the autistic child's behavior are considered; and a clinical, experimental, and behavioral description of a single child is provided. School room experiments are considered, and a clinical description is given of the population included in the study along with an evaluation of the changes in the children in the program. (JD)
