Summary This thesis explores a variety of intervention strategies that can be used in the home with children with special needs who are demonstrating challenging behaviors due to the lack of functional communication, with a focus on children of Latino parents. Research regarding positive behavior support, functional behavior training, parental involvement, and strategies to support families at home have been reviewed. A case study was conducted with a family raising a preschool age boy who was receiving special education services due to an eligibility of developmental delay. The researcher observed the family's interactions, conducted home visits, and worked with the family by coaching and modeling play and communication strategies in their home environment. The data revealed that in-home parent training had positive effects on the family relationship and interaction with the child, leading to improved communication and behavior in a variety of settings.
