The study evaluates a comprehensive, ecological approach to behavioral family intervention with a family of a child with severe disabilities and severe problem behaviors. A multiple-baseline design across family routines assessed the functional relationship between parent implementation of a multicomponent intervention and improvement in child behavior and successful completion of routines. Results indicate durable improvements in child behavior and routine completion. Associated outcomes included generalized improvements in child behavior and enhanced activity patterns. Results verify the efficacy of the approach for ameliorating problem behaviors and empowering parents to build successful family routines. The value of collaborative research with families is briefly discussed.
