Description of Functional Communication as a Means of Decreasing Self-injurious Behavior: A Case Study



Abstract: This case study examines the effects of a systematic functional communication training program on the self-injurious behaviors of a girl who is blind and has severe disabilities. The two-level program, in which the girl was offered choices among preferred activities and learned to use a communication board, resulted in a decrease in the episodes of these behaviors.
