Functional Analysis of Episodic Self-Injury Correlated with Recurrent Otitis Media.
O'Reilly, Mark F.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v30 n1 p165-67 Spr 1997
A functional analysis examined the consequences that maintained episodic self-injury and the relationship between those consequences and otitis media for a 26-month-old child with developmental disabilities. Results indicated that self-injury occurred only during periods of otitis media and may have served as a sensory escape function. (Author/CR)
