Home–school reinforcement: A case study

Leach, D.J. and Ralph, A. (1986) Home–school reinforcement: A case study. Behaviour Change, 3 (1). pp. 58-62.


Describes a home-based reinforcement program that was implemented to decrease classroom rule violations by a 16-yr-old boy with a long history of disruptive behavior in a secondary school classroom. The critical features of the intervention are discussed, including the fading procedure used to maintain the behavioral gains exhibited during the program's operation. The usefulness of minimal interventions, such as home-based reinforcement programs, in the management of problem behavior in schools is also discussed.
