A review of the literature from recent years indicates that various behavior interventions used with conduct disordered adolescents have a varied rate of success in the area of transference from one realm to another. Much of the research concludes with a suggestion for more research to be done on the topic. The study focused on investigating the use of a three level intervention plan on four students with behavior disorders. Each of the three levels consisted of more invasive interventions. A plan was drawn up by the Behavior Interventionist and the regular classroom teacher and investigated for the effect on decreasing disruptive classroom behavior in four students.
