Protective Equipment as Treatment for Stereotypic Hand Mouthing: Sensory Extinction or Punishment Effects?
Mazaleski, Jodi L.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v27 n2 p345-55 Sum 1994
This study evaluated effects of noncontingent and contingent protective equipment as treatment for self-injurious hand mouthing by two women with profound mental retardation. Behavior change appeared to be effected in both conditions. Results suggest either a punishment or a timeout interpretation, rather than an extinction interpretation, for the behavior-reducing effects of contingent protective equipment. (Author/DB)
