The Efficacy of an Overcorrection Procedure in the Management of Tongue Thrust and Drooling Behavior.
Goldfarb, Robert; Guglielmo, Hope
An overcorrection procedure was developed and used to eliminate drooling and tongue thrusting in two 5-year-old speech and language impaired females (one cerebral palsied and the other with an inherited disease of the autonomic nervous system). The procedure, which involved positive reinforcement paired with a verbal warning, eliminated one child's drooling and reduced the other child's tongue thrusting behavior. (Author/SB)
