ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of solution-focused brief counseling(SFBC) on the in-class attentive behavior of children with disabilities. The subjects were three children with mild mental retardation. They attended an elementary school in which inclusive education programs were supported for them. This study was based on the reversal design of single subject research which included baseline, intervention, and follow-up. Nine-sessions SFBC program was provided for the subjects, and their attentive behaviors and inattentive behaviors were observed and recorded by two trained observers in special education class. The main results were as follows. First, the attentive behaviors of the subjects were gradually increasing during the intervention sessions. Second, the inattentive behaviors were gradually decreasing during the intervention sessions. Third, the maintenance effects of the intervention were shown in the follow-up sessions. Based on the results, several suggestions were made for the counseling for the children with disabilities and future studies.
