ABSTRACT
The parents of a child with Cri du Chat syndrome implemented a graduated guidance procedure that the mother had read about in the training manual, Teaching developmentally disabled children: The ME book (Lovaas et al., 1981). They used graduated guidance to teach their child two functional living skills--eating and ball rolling. A multiple baseline design across two behaviors was used to determine the effectiveness of the intervention. Minimal involvement was provided by outside professionals. Results indicated that the program was successful for teaching these two skills; more importantly, the skills maintained at a 52-week follow-up.
