Effects of Parent Training on the Behavior Problems in the Home of Preschool Handicapped Children.
Lantzy, Theresa J.; Gable, Robert A.
The effect of a combined teacher-parent behavior management program on inappropriate behaviors in the school and in the homes of five preschool handicapped children is evaluated. The teacher/trainer collaborated with the parents to select a target behavior (finger chewing, cup throwing, screaming, spitting, hand licking) for each child. Training in selected behavior management strategies was provided by the trainer via consultation in the home. Behavior management programs were introduced simultaneously in the home and in the classroom using an AB design. The results suggest that collaborating with parents in instituting a behavior change program may decrease the occurrence of undesired behavior both in home and school settings.
