A large number of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities is being restrained or sedated during dental exams. A body of behavior analytic literature has demonstrated various approaches to gain compliance in the absence of physical restraint. This presentation will discuss methodologies we used to assess and improve compliance through collaboration with caregivers and dental professionals.

This 2-hour LIVE WEBINAR will occur on September 11th from 2pm to 4pm, Eastern Time.

During this event, we will present research conducted via telehealth (preliminary data) as well as in vivo with goal to increase compliance during dental exams for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The procedure included a hierarchy of the least-to-most complex treatment to increase compliance to dental exams with individuals who had a history of restrains or sedation during dental exams. Initially a board-certified behavior analyst conducted the dental exam or coached the caregiver to conduct the exam when the sessions occurred via telehealth. During the initial evaluation, the procedure included three components, “show-do-tell”, praise contingent on compliance to steps in the task analysis, and scheduled breaks. When the participants complied with all the task analysis steps, they were evaluated by a dentist in a clinic environment. The findings indicate many participants needed just a few sessions of intervention to increase compliance during the dental examination.
