Abstract

This study was conducted to investigate the use of a reversal ABAB design to decrease the occurrence of a problem behavior of an adult woman. The woman was identified chewing her food with her mouth open at least ten times during the duration of dinner. Therefore, an intervention was implemented that included the use of both auditory and visual prompts to eliminate the problem behavior. The results demonstrated that this intervention effectively decreased the occurrence of the problem behavior.
