Prevent-Teach-Reinforce: Addressing Problem Behaviors of Students with Autism in General Education Classrooms
Strain, Phillip S.; Wilson, Kelly; Dunlap, Glen
Behavioral Disorders, v36 n3 p160-171 May 2011
Children with autism and other disabilities are often prohibited from participating in inclusive educational environments due to the occurrence of problem behaviors. In this study, a standardized model for individualizing procedures of behavior support, Prevent-Teach-Reinforce (PTR), was evaluated in general education settings with three elementary school students with autism spectrum disorders and serious problem behaviors. A multiple baseline across students design was used to test the effects of PTR on the occurrence of problem behaviors and academic engagement. Results indicated that problem behaviors were reduced and engagement was increased for all of the participants. The findings are discussed in relation to the importance and the challenges of implementation fidelity and effective behavior support in general education settings. (Contains 2 figures.)
