1. Arellano, Andrew J. Peer Tutoring To Teach Children To Seek Help When Lost.

Degree: MS, Applied Behavior Analysis, 2015, Central Washington University

ABSTRACT PEER TUTORING TO TEACH CHILDREN TO SEEK HELP WHEN LOST by Andrew Arellano August 2015 There are many programs that are designed to teach children safety skills. Skills such as gun safety, first aid, and abduction prevention have all been taught using a method called Behavioral Skills Training (BST). However, BST only teaches a few children at a time and is often taught by an expert. This study aimed to test whether young children (5 year olds) can learn from older peer trainers (11 & 12 year olds) who have been taught to use BST. The safety skill targeted for the current study was the behavior of seeking help when lost in a store because the use of peer training has not yet been studied in terms of teaching this skill. Two young learners and two trainers participated in the study. The results of varied: one learner supported the hypothesis, while the other learner’s performance did not meet the required criteria. Future research should include more research participants, a larger variety of safety skills, and improved efforts in recruiting. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Wendy Williams, Dr. Libby Street, Dr. Sadie Lovett.
