Teacher-Child Interaction Therapy (TCIT) is an emerging evidence-based form of therapy used to treat preschool children experiencing different types of externalizing behavior problems (Lyon et al., 2009). The current study attempted to add to the literature concerning TCIT by implementing and examining the effectiveness of TCIT on five students and three teachers behavior when conducted twice per week in a controlled, multiple baseline study. This study also examined the effects of coaching on teacher behavior and the effects of the teachers improved response on student behavior. Significant results indicated increases in teacher positive behavior, student compliance, and direct commands. The importance of in-vivo modeling is also demonstrated. Although results suggest this intervention is effective, much more research is needed to validate its success in a school setting.
