In Reply to: Hand biting {chewing} posted by Hope on November 02, 2000 at 23:50:02:


: The 11 yr. old I take care of in a private home setting has cP , seizures,she is ambulatory, but very low functioning.she bites or chews the palm of her hand when she gets adjitated..Everyone is saying more meds...any alternatives to this would be welcomed. She is on so much now..

Have you set up a behavior managment system, such as giving the child rewards
(e.g., bite sized foods, favorite activities, etc. that the child finds exciting) when the child is
not biting her hand? I have tried similar plans with students who I teach. Hope it helps.

Amanda
