Abstract

Based on clinical observations of a naturally occurring phenomenon, a water‐prompting procedure was used to facilitate toilet training with a 9‐year‐old boy with profound mental retardation. Other frequently used toilet‐training procedures were either ineffective or were associated with increased self‐injury. The water‐prompting treatment package may increase continence by eliciting and reinforcing urination under specific stimulus conditions. 1993 Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior
