Abstract

A functional analysis showed that breath holding exhibited by a 16-year-old boy with mental retardation occurred independent of social consequences. Assessment results of the existing treatment procedure - a verbal reprimand - were used to design a treatment package that reduced the behavior to low levels across 7 months.
