Parent Training and Utilization of Knowledge from Research on Cognitive Socialization.
Henderson, Ronald W.; Swanson, Rosemary
American Indian paraprofessionals were trained to teach parents to use social learning principles to develop question-asking skills in their first-grade children. Subjects were assigned to three treatment groups of 10 subjects each for a time lag control form of multiple baseline design. Two hypotheses were tested: (1) instruction by parents would result in increases in question-asking over the duration of the study, and (2) following each intervention period, treated groups would perform better than untreated groups. Both hypotheses were confirmed. "A priori" orthogonal t-test comparisons were all significant beyond .01. Variables relating to individual differences in response to instruction were also studied.
