Abstract This study examined the generalization effects of a training program for parents of oppositional, mildly developmentally disabled preschool children. Specifically, the study sought to determine the possible differential generalization effects of treatment to high and low risk parenting settings. Treatment comprised child management and planned activities training procedures specifically designed to enhance generalization effects. A multiple baseline design across subjects that incorporated a non-treatment control subject was employed. Dependent measures included deviant child behavior, accuracy of parent implementation of treatment procedures, and specific measures of aversive and non-aversive parent behaviors. Three of the treated families showed marked reductions in levels of deviant behavior, as well as increases in parental implementation of treatment procedures in both the training setting and the low risk generalization setting. Two of these three families showed little improvement in either generalization setting. It was concluded that the treatment program was effective in producing generalization effects in parent training.
