The present study consists of two experiments that analyzed the effects of high and low densities of reinforcement on the appropriate and inappropriate behaviors of a 9-year-old girl with autism. The first experiment investigated the effects of density of reinforcement on the frequency of screaming and handbiting during a motor imitation teaching task. High densities of reinforcement produced fewer occurrences of screaming and handbiting than low densities of reinforcement. Over time, the interspersal of high and low density of training sets resulted in a decrease in screaming and handbiting in both high and low density of reinforcement conditions. Experiment 2 also analyzed the effects of effects of density of reinforcement during motor imitation tasks. Screaming and handbiting did not recur during Experiment 2. High density of reinforcement conditions showed a positive effect on compliance with prompts, accuracy, and verbalizations
