Hirsch, Nancy; Myles, Brenda Smith
Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, v11 n4 p222-25 Win 1996
A pica box (containing items safe to chew) was used as an intervention with a 10-year-old autistic girl with pica behaviors in a special education setting. Evaluation using an ABAB design (varying in availability of the pica box) found a decrease in pica attempts when the pica box was available to the student. (DB)
