Abstract
Many studies have indicated that behavior modification is effective in treating eating problems in children. However, only a few of these studies have focused on the implementation of a behavior modification approach in treating selective eating and food neophobia disorder in toddlers. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of antecedent control procedures and differential reinforcement of incompatible behavior in treating a toddler with selective eating and food neophobia disorder. This is a single case design study with multiple baselines across three mealtime situations. The intervention consisted of 40 sessions with pre- and post-tests to compare and measure the child’s progress. The results showed that the child was able to increase her meat consumption 25% from 100 g to 125 g per day. This positive trend also occurred for her milk consumption, which increased from 200 ml to 350 ml per day. In addition, the child gained 1.7 kg of weight after the intervention. This study provides promising support for utilizing the antecedent control and differential reinforcement of incompatible behavior in treating selective eating and food neophobia disorder in toddlers.
