The, incompatible behavior selected during the inter-, vention was placing rings onto a peg which was, related to the participants’ current habilitati, SIB. Following the implementation of the DRO procedure and access to reinforcing stimuli that were believed to provide similar sensory feedback to that of the self-injurious nail biting, the results indicate that the nail biting was successfully reduced and maintained at near zero levels.
