Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine if sequential presentation with feeder modeling would lead to an increase in bites accepted of new foods compared to sequential presentation without feeder modeling in a typically developing 4-year-old boy with food selectivity. The participant's acceptance of novel foods increased both in the modeling and non-modeling conditions only after the procedure was modified to include minimal amounts of escape extinction and when access to preferred foods was restricted to the first 10 min of treatment meals. Modeling appeared to have an enhancement effect when the additional components were added to the intervention and subsequently, the modified intervention with modeling was implemented for the remaining treatment sessions. Treatment gains were reported to be maintained at both 1-month and 3-months following the intervention.
