Flexible Arm Splints in the Control of a Lesch-Nyhan Victim's Finger Biting and a Profoundly Retarded Client's Finger Sucking.
Ball, Thomas S.; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v15 n2 p177-84 Jun 1985
Flexible arm splints permitting the control of hand-to-mouth contacts without restricting range of motion effectively suppressed the self-injurious finger biting of a child with Lesch-Nyhan disease and a profoundly retarded adult's stereotypic finger sucking. They offered an easily applied and much less restrictive alternative to soft-tie and tubular arm restraint. (Author/CL)
