Source: Journal of Developmental and Physical Disabilities, Volume 15, Number 2, June 2003 , pp. 93-99(7)
In the current investigation, the effects of violent and nonviolent active play activities on the results obtained within a brief functional analysis format were evaluated. A treatment procedure for the child was also carried out. The results indicated that aberrant behavior was displayed when the child was denied access to active play activities within the tangible functional analysis condition. Thus, it appears that for this child that active play served as a primary form of tangible reinforcement.
