Three studies on recent advances in managing the behavior of young children will be presented. In the first study, a timeout procedure was evaluated to decrease problem behavior and increase compliance to the timeout demand in five preschool children. In the second study, advance notice was evaluated as a method of increasing compliance among three preschool children. Finally, in the third study, a human operant preparation was used to examine resurgence of problem behavior during treatment integrity failures and extinction. This was then examined in a young child with autism.
