This study examined use of functional assessment and individualized parent-implemented intervention plans among three families of children with autism in the home setting, including functional communication training with relevant ecological manipulations. Results showed large reductions in children's aggression toward siblings, increased parent and child happiness, and increases in strangers' comfort interacting with the family. (Author/PB)
