This study evaluated the effects that simultaneous presentation of preferred and non-preferred food had on consumption of non-preferred foods. The study simultaneously presented a 5-year-old boy diagnosed with autism, preferred and non-preferred foods in a changing criterion design. The non-preferred food was systematically increased and the preferred food then faded out. The results indicate that simultaneous presentation and fading were effective methods for increasing consumption of two non-preferred foods.
