Use of Peer-Mediated Intervention in Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Grauvogel-MacAleese, Alicia N.; Wallace, Michele D.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v43 n3 p547-551 Fall 2010
The present experiment extended and replicated the use of functional analysis and a peer-mediated intervention to decrease disruptive behavior displayed by children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in an afterschool program. After determining that the participants displayed off-task behavior maintained by peer attention via a functional analysis, peer-implemented differential reinforcement of other behavior with extinction was effective in reducing participants' off-task behaviors. The use of peers as behavior-change agents is discussed, as are avenues for future research. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
