Abstract/Summary:

Many behavior analysts are familiar with externalizing behavior disorders such as aggression and tantrums, but are often challenged by less frequent, but often highly challenging low frequency behavior disorders. These include pica, handmouthing, rumination, airophagia, bruxism and polydipsia. These behavior disorders are challenging because they are often maintained by automatic positive, positive reinforcement, are often seen in individuals with severe / profound cognitive disabilities and severe autism, sometimes involve management of restraint, and sometimes involve related medical conditions. This webinar will review the definition, measurement, etiology and functional analyses of these behaviors. Finally, it will go on to identify best practices in the behavior analytic treatment of these conditions.

Learning Objectives:

After attending this event participants should be able to describe:

  • The defiitions of pica, handmouthing, rumination, airophagia, bruxism and polydipsia;
  • The common functional features of pica, handmouthing, rumination, airophagia, bruxism and polydipsia;
  • How to conduct functional assessments and analyses of these behaviors; and
  • Evidence-based practices for these behaviors.”
