Abstract: Based on analysis of 213 studies with 358 subjects draws a number of important conclusions: (1) behavioral interventions were on average effective in reducing problem behavior, but some interventions were significantly more effective than others; (2) the use of positive (nonaversive) behavioral interventions was increasing over time; (3) behavioral interventions were on average equally effective regardless of the type of problem behavior that was targeted; (4) interventions preceded by a functional analysis reduced problem behavior significantly more than interventions not preceded by such an analysis; (5) treatment and experimental characteristics, but not participant characteristics, were statistically significant moderators of the behavioral treatment effectiveness.
