An experimental analysis of side effects and response maintenance of a modified over correction procedure the case of the persistent twiddler



An experimental analysis of side effects and response maintenance of a modified over correction procedure the case of the persistent twiddler



Behavior Therapy 9(3): 383-390



A 3- and 5-min modified overcorrection procedure was used to suppress a high-frequency hand stereotypic behavior, twiddling, exhibited by a 10-yr-old retarded autistic child. As demonstrated through the use of an ABCB design, both durations of overcorrection were immediately successful in reducing twiddling to near 0 levels during 20-min classroom training sessions. Neither overcorrection procedure resulted in a great deal of response maintenance during a 10-min, free-play probe period immediately following the training sessions. Approach and proximity to the trainer were also assessed during the free-play probe sessions. Neither of these behaviors varied significantly from baseline measures when the overcorrection procedures were instituted. The 3-min overcorrection duration (B) produced slightly more response maintenance than the 5-min duration (C). This small effect reversed when the 3-min duration was reinstated.
