Abstract

A profoundly mentally handicapped woman was reported to be a major management problem for staff in the residential home where she lived, especially at mealtimes. Following a constructional approach the subject's appropriate behaviour was targeted. A multiple baseline design with reversal was used to investigate the effects of a contingent contact procedure on the subject's level of engagement. Results showed the procedure to be effective in increasing the amount of time the subject spent engaged in appropriate mealtime behaviour. Continuing problem behaviour at other times of day is discussed within the context of the overall living environment.
