Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of the study was to measure the effects of an interdependent group contingency applied to a general education school bus transporting students from outside of natural attendance zones and boundaries. The intervention in this study included students ages 9 and 10 and included general education students and students with Special Education eligibilities of Developmental Delay and Autism Spectrum Disorder. The methods in this quantitative study consisted of comprehensive training provided to the bus driver, immediate and specific feedback for the student, and access to predetermined reinforcers when the entire group met criteria for success. The students individually and collectively made gains in daily average of targeted prosocial behavior when comparing daily averages in baseline to daily averages during the implementation of the intervention.
