The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a brief pill swallowing intervention that included behavioral, adaptive, and positioning approaches. Sixteen individuals with Barth syndrome, ages 6 to 34, participated. Pill-swallowing milestones were evaluated pretraining, immediately posttraining, and at six-months posttraining. Overall, there was a statistically significant change in pill swallowing ability from pretraining to posttraining; changes were maintained after six months.
