Abstract (Summary)

Although the current body of research on parent training is limited, research has shown parent training to be an effective way of producing naturalistic learning within the home. The purpose of the current study was to determine whether a language intervention could be taught to parents to increase independent manding responses in their children. Three naturally occurring family routines were chosen by the family, and the parent was trained to implement an echoic-to-mand procedure with her child to increase manding responses. Results indicated that the parent successfully implemented behavior analytic strategies during naturally occurring family routines, increasing her child’s verbal behavior acquisition.
