Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Analyzing the use of various ratios when implementing the high-probability instructional sequence to treat food selectivity
by Haney, Caitlin Huston, M.A., California State University, Los Angeles, 2015, 22; 1602027
Abstract (Summary)

When it comes to feeding, children with autism display higher noncompliance with food consumption. The high-probability instructional sequence is an intervention used to increase compliance in feeding with children with autism. By utilizing a parametric analysis in additional to a multielement design, various ratios of the high-probability instructional sequence were tested. Results suggest that the 3:1 ratio is most successful when implementing the high-probability instructional sequence to increase food complaiance in children with autism spectrum disorder.
