Graduated Guidance Delivered by Parents to Teach Yoga to Children with Developmental Delays
Gruber, Deborah J.; Poulson, Claire L.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v49 n1 p193-198 Mar 2016
We evaluated the effects of a parent-implemented intervention to teach yoga poses to 3 children with developmental delays. Graduated guidance, provided by the participants' mothers, was introduced in a multiple baseline design across the participants. With the introduction of intervention, imitation of the response chains increased over baseline for all participants. Generalization to novel and live models occurred for 2 participants. Results are discussed in terms of using behavior-analytic procedures to teach physical fitness activities to individuals with developmental disabilities.
