Contingent instructional-pacing was used successfully to reduce the frequency of stereotypic motor behavior displayed by a 15-year old boy with acquired brain injury. The procedure consisted of presenting verbal instructions requiring him to perform a simple motor response each time stereotypy was demonstrated. This intervention reduced stereotypic motor behavior to a near zero frequency. (Author/MKA)
