This study examines the effectiveness of fixed-time (FT) and variable-time (VT) schedules and attention on the problem behaviors and on-task behaviors of students with and without intellectual disabilities in inclusive classrooms in Turkey. Three second-grade students with intellectual disabilities, three students without intellectual disabilities, and three teachers participated in this study. The ABAC reversal design of the single-subject design was used. A1 and A2 were the baseline conditions; in the B condition, an FT schedule of attention (every four minutes) was implemented, and in the C condition, a VT schedule of attention (average four minutes) was utilized. The results demonstrated that FT and VT schedules of attention decreased problem behaviors, and increased on-task behaviors during lessons. Moreover, in the VT schedule of attention, gains were noted to be faster and more consistent, and teachers performed VT more easily.
