Abstract

This study assessed the possibility of toilet training a 9 year old boy with multiple disabilities using ZigBee based wetness sensor technology and a positive reinforcement strategy. This study was carried out according to an ABAB sequence in which A represented the baseline and B represented intervention phases. Data showed that the participant significantly increased his target response, thus improving daytime urinary continence during the intervention phases. Practical and developmental implications of the findings are discussed.
