  1. An individual with mental retardation frequently engages in aggressive behavior when he wants a break from a task at When he engages in aggressive behavior, he is required to continue working on the task, but if he asks for a break his behavior is reinforced with a break from the task. Which variation of DRA is being used in this example?
  2. Andrea is four years old and has limited communication She often becomes noncompliant (says “No!”, pulls away, and pouts in a corner) when she is told to sit at the table to work on less preferred learning activities.

You want to implement DRA, because Andrea has limited communication skills. Which of the following would be an example of DRA using negative reinforcement?
