Previous studies have found a three-step prompting procedure effective in increasing child compliance with caregiver instructions. In this study, a study (Tarbox, Wallace, Penrod, and Tarbox, 2007) has been replicated and extended to a Spanish-speaking population. In a multiple baseline across a two-subject design, caregivers were trained to follow a least-to-most prompting procedure contingent on child's noncompliant behavior, within a home setting. Participating children demonstrated low levels of compliance during baseline, but, following caregiver training on a three-step prompting procedure, the children's compliance increased. This extends the generality of these procedures to a novel linguistic population. This procedure and set of finding also supports the view that non-professional caregivers may be taught how to follow procedures for extending instructional control over the behavior of the children whose welfare they are responsible for.
