Functional Analysis and Intervention for Breath Holding.
Kern, Lee; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v28 n3 p339-40 Fall 1995
A functional analysis of breath-holding episodes in a 7-year-old girl with severe mental retardation and Cornelia-de-Lange syndrome indicated that breath holding served an operant function, primarily to gain access to attention. Use of extinction, scheduled attention, and a picture card communication system decreased breath holding. (Author/SW)
