The Effects of Music and Operant Conditioning on Gross Motor Activity of Profound Mental Retardates

The Effects of Music and Operant Conditioning on Gross Motor Activity of Profound Mental Retardates

Date: January 1968
Creator: Addison, Max R.
Description: It has not yet been demonstrated that music can be used therapeutically with profoundly retarded children. One way these children might be helped to respond to music, and therapeutically benefit from it, would be to use operant conditioning in an effort to enhance gross motor activity and then progressively shape responses until more complex behavior patterns are formed. Once these children can respond motorically in the presence of musical stimuli, continuation of responding may be possible by pairing motor activity with musical stimuli. This experiment investigated the effects of operant conditioning and music on the motor activity of profoundly retarded children in an effort to determine the therapeutic usefulness of music with such children.
