Abstract:Challenging behaviors such as self-injurious behavior, aggression, and severe tantrums are a major issue for individuals with disabilities and their family members. A multiple probe single-case research study was conducted with three families who had young children with challenging behavior. The purpose of the study was to evaluate, using mixed methods, the effectiveness of a parent training and coaching program, delivered via telepractice, for implementing a function-based intervention with three children. The parent training and coaching program was effective in developing proficiency and confidence in parents’ strategy use. In addition, children’s challenging behavior decreased. Families stated that they benefited from the study and were satisfied with the goals, procedures, and outcomes of the intervention. Most of the telepractice procedures were successful; however, several issues related to technology were discovered which need to be considered in future research.
