Reitman, David; Drabman, Ronald S.
Education and Treatment of Children, v22 n2 p136-45 May 1999
A case study illustrates how the ongoing data-based monitoring of timeout use by parents enhanced the treatment of an 8-year-old boy, referred because of noncompliance in the home. Maintaining the timeout record enabled rapid refinements in the timeout procedure by providing a feedback mechanism to the therapist, identification of the need for adjunctive treatments, and a means of documenting treatment efficacy.
