Assessment and Treatment of Deviant Behavior in Children - Section Four: Evaluation of Three Experimental and One Control Strategy in Facilitating Generalization and Maintenance of Treatment Effects Following Two Months of Treatment in a Token Economy. Final Report.
Walker, Hill M.; Buckley, Nancy K.
The document is section four of a six part report on the assessment and treatment of deviant behavior in children. The effects of three experimental strategy were investigated to facilitate generalization of treatment effects following 2 months in a token economy classroom. Forty four subjects were assigned to one of three experimental strategies, peer group reprograming, equation of external stimulus conditions, and teacher training in behavior management techniques, which were implemented in the regular classroom for a 2 month period. The amount of deviant behavior produced by the subjects was the dependent variable. The average for all 44 subjects was felt to show behavior maintenance effects from treatment during followup. The token economy was considered to have a powerful treatment effect. Other aspects of the project are found in section one (EC 032 208) overview; section two (EC 032 209) assessment; section three (EC 032 210) treatment; section five (EC 032 212) teacher behavior; and section six (EC 032 213) single subject experiments.
