Systems Effects of the Acquisition of Response-Contingent Behavior

The major goal of this Project was to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of early contingency learning games to promote the learning and development of young children with profound and severe developmental delays and multiple disabilities. The project was funded, in part, by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (H324R010045).
