Generalized Compliance Training: A Direct Instruction Program for Managing Severe Behavior Problems.
Colvin, Geoffrey; And Others
Five case studies illustrate the use of generalized compliance training with students who have severe behavior problems. Based on extinction and generalization processes, the approach consists of five phases: (1) assessment to determine the nature and severity of noncompliance; (2)initial instruction demonstrating the consequences of compliance and noncompliance; (3) provision to permit responses to major and minor noncompliances; (4) use of a precorrection before the learner engages in activities that prompt noncompliance; and (5) final training involving instructional sets and targeting of less obvious inappropriate behaviors. Procedural safeguards that should be in place prior to program implementation are outlined. Case studies depect the effectiveness of generalized compliance training with multiply hadicapped, disturbed, profoundly retarded, and autistic students. The program produced changes relatively quickly and durably. (CL)
