Abstract

The following paper is a description of a single-case treatment programme designed to decrease the rate of eating in a neuropsychiatrically impaired inpatient with prior serious incidents of choking. Eating was slowed by the use of audiotaped pacing within the context of a token economy. Generalised reinforcers (tokens) were provided or withdrawn contingent upon the time taken to eat each meal. The audiotaped pacing and generalised reinforcers were gradually thinned once the patient's rate of eating was decreased to a relatively safe pace. The factors considered crucial in designing and implementing such a programme are discussed.
