Matson, Johnny L.; Mahan, Sara; LoVullo, Santino V.
Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v30 n5 p961-968 Sep-Oct 2009
Great strides have been made in the development of skills and procedures to aid children with developmental disabilities to establish maximum independence and quality of life. Paramount among the treatment methods that have empirical support are treatments based on applied behavior analysis. These methods are often very labor intensive. Thus, parent involvement in treatment implementation is advisable. A substantial literature on parent training for children has therefore emerged. This article reviews recent advances and current trends with respect to this topic.
