Seven children aging between 3 and 6 years with developmental disabilities were participated in this study, which examined the effects of the Activity-Based Intervention Program (ABIP) on the transition skills. The study used time series design and the implementation process was composed of "before instruction phase", "instruction phase" and, "after instruction phase", each phase lasting 6 weeks "generalization phase" lasted 4 weeks. In the ABIP "following directions", "lining up", "working independently" and "collecting materials" skills were taught. In order to investigate the effect of ABIP, children were assessed two times before and after the instruction by using the Preschool Transition Skills Assessment Scale (PTSAS). Three time series for the four skills included in the program before and after the instruction by implementing task analytic recording and whole interval recording. A single measure was completed at the generalization phase by implementing task analytic recording. The results of the analysis show that significant differences are found at the after instruction phase comparing to the before instruction phase concerning children's PTSAS scores and at the percentages of correct responses and interval occurrence for the four skills.
