A Coat Reduces Mouthing: It Worked in My Classroom.
Simpson, Annette M.
Teaching Exceptional Children, v20 n2 p68-69 Win 1988
A coat was adapted for a 20-year-old severely handicapped woman to control her practice of "mouthing" her hands and clothing. Velcro strips attached to the coat held the student's arms down long enough to allow for differential reinforcement of appropriate behavior, which successfully reduced the rate of mouthing. (JDD)
