Pace, Gary M.; Toyer, Edward A.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v33 n4 p619-22 Win 2000
The effects of a common multiple vitamin on the pica of a 9-year-old with severe mental retardation and anemia were evaluated. A BAB design revealed that pica was decreased by the vitamin. Further research investigating the generality of this finding and effects of combining biological and behavioral interventions are discussed. (Contains five references.) (Author/CR)
