1. Tomeny, Theodore S. The Relation Between Externalizing Behaviors of Children With an Autism Spectrum Disorder and the Externalizing Behaviors, Internalizing Symptoms, and Social Problems of Their Typically-Developing Siblings.

Degree: MA, Psychology, 2011, University of Southern Mississippi

Existing literature regarding the maladjustment of siblings of children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) remains inconclusive. Some studies suggest that difficulties associated with having a child with an ASD in the family result in an adverse experience for both parents and siblings. Dissent within. the literature suggests that certain factors, both environmental and genetic, must be present for maladjustment to occur in typically-developing siblings. Parents of a child with an ASD and a typicallydeveloping sibling (ASD group) and parents of two typically-developing siblings (Control group) provided data via online questionnaires. Both diagnostic category and autism symptoms severity were tested as possible moderators, but neither produced significant interactions with externalizing behaviors in the child with an ASD or an age/gender matched control child when predicting externalizing behaviors, internalizing symptoms, or social problems in the typically-developing sibling. However, externalizing behaviors and internalizing symptoms in the child with an ASD or matched typically-developing child significantly related to maladjustment in their sibling across the overall sample. Thus, it appears having a sibling with an ASD is neither a risk nor protective factor for typically-developing siblings. Also, behavior problems in children with an ASD may not be a strong predictor of maladjustment in typically-developing siblings. However, these results are concordant with the current literature base, and other possible moderators and mediators should be considered in future research.

2. Harpole, Lauren Lestremau. Application of Check In-Check Out as a Targeted Intervention to Increase Appropriate Behavior in At-Risk High School Students.

Degree: MA, Psychology, 2010, University of Southern Mississippi

The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of Check In-Check Out (CICO) in increasing appropriate behavior and decreasing disruptive behavior of three students in south Mississippi who were referred for behavioral problems, a multiple baseline across students design was employed. Target students' levels of appropriate behavior and frequency of disruptive behavior over time were compared through evaluation of daily behavior report card (DBRC) point data and rates of office discipline referrals (ODRs). Treatment integrity was assessed. The current study serves as one of the few studies in the CICO literature to (a) implement ClCO in a high school setting, (b) examine appropriate behavior through the use of DBRC, (c) evaluate treatment integrity for all days of CICO implementation, and (d) set point goals based on baseline performance. Furthermore, challenges in implementation and possible solutions are discussed. Results suggest that CICO may be a viable intervention, resulting in increases in appropriate behavior and decreases in disruptive behaviors across all participants.
