Abstract :

Naturalistic behavioral intervention has proven more successful than other forms of therapy for learning disabled adults. Rather than simply targeting contingency management, the naturalistic method addresses a patient's community settings, social ecology and lifestyle practices. By understanding the needs of a patient, therapists can develop a behavior modification program the patient is more likely to follow.
