Scholarcy highlights

  • This study examined the effects of training five parents to use Milieu Teaching procedures with their preschool-aged children with disabilities
  • In a multiple baseline design across families, parents were trained in two conditions: group instruction with home feedback sessions and intensive home feedback sessions
  • Intensive feedback and coaching was implemented in the home which resulted in criterion level performance by most parents and in acquisition of the target skills by the children
  • These results suggest that parents can learn some basic Milieu Teaching skills in a short-term group instruction format, but intensive practice of these skills will be required before parents reach criterion levels of performance
  • Factors contributing to variability in parent and child performance are discussed
