Course Description

Eligible for BACB CEUs

Healthcare routines are regularly scheduled practices that maintain the health of an individual. Noncompliance during healthcare routines is a widely reported problem, especially for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) (Allen, Stanley, & McPherson, 1990). This is problematic because noncompliance may affect the quality with which a procedure is completed (DeMattei, Cuvo, & Maurizio, 2007), limit access to healthcare (Kemp, 2005), or put the child at risk for injury. There is a large body of research to suggest it may be possible to increase compliance with healthcare routines using various behavioral treatments. This presentation aims to summarize the current literature with respect to using behavioral treatments to increase compliance with healthcare routines, provide recommendations for caregivers and practitioners, and identify avenues for future research.
