Oral Feeding Treatment of Children with Chronic Food Refusal and Multiple Developmental Disabilities.
Luiselli, James K.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v98 n5 p646-55 Mar 1993
Therapeutic intervention to treat chronic food refusal in two children with multiple developmental disabilities consisted of elimination of feeding "demands" that provoked child agitation, incorporation of sensory stimulation as contingent reinforcement, and gradual introduction of the requirements for oral consumption. Consistent oral consumption was achieved rapidly for both children and maintained. (Author/JDD)
