Effects of Thioridazine and Visual Screening on Stereotypy and Social Behavior in Individuals with Mental Retardation.
Singh, Nirbhay N.; And Others
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v14 n3 p163-77 May-Jun 1993
This study of three individuals (ages 12-14) with profound mental retardation found that visual screening was more effective than thioridazine in reducing stereotypy and increasing social behavior. Thioridazine produced modest stereotypy reductions and minor social behavior increases, with a higher dose slightly more effective than a lower dose (though this was not clinically significant).
