Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a model-lead-test paired with contingent rewards on the basic rote counting skills of a four-year-old girl in her home. Our participant attended a university-sponsored preschool twice a week. She also came from a stable household. Before the study began, the participant could not count to 15 without skipping numbers. When rewards and model-lead-test were employed, the participant’s counting improved. The efficacy of employing model-lead-test in the home was discussed.
