Williams, Don E.; And Others
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v14 n3 p207-19 May-Jun 1993
The severe self-injurious behavior of a woman with profound mental retardation was treated with 3.5 milliamps of shock combined with reinforcement and extinction techniques, with minimal results. Treatment with the Hot Shot Power Mite, which delivers 18.5 milliamps, combined with reinforcement for compliance and extinction of self-injurious escape behavior, was effective. (Author/JDD)
