Reduction of Hand Mouthing by a Boy with Profound Mental Retardation.
McClure, John T.; And Others
Mental Retardation, v24 n4 p219-22 Aug 1986
An automated training device was used in the differential reinforcement of an incompatible behavior in the treatment of hand mouthing of a boy with profound mental retardation and blindness. The presentation of music and vibration contingent upon bilateral hand-switch placement resulted in substantial and sustained reduction of hand mouthing with little additional staff time. (Author/CB)
