This study investigated how a treatment package of a modified task analysis and breathing exercises affected post concussion syndrome related symptoms while performing daily tasks. The participant submitted virtual surveys to collect self-reported brain injury related symptom data, and the researcher used behavioral skills training to train the participant on all the procedures. Using a reversal design, brain injury symptoms decreased and maintained at low levels during intervention. Results demonstrated preliminary support for proof-of-concept on using applied behavior analytic principles to decrease in variability and maintain covert brain injury related symptoms and daily task performance.
