The importance of quality of early parent-child relationships has become increasingly appreciated. The purpose of the present study was to examine the effect of teaching mothers to use responsive communication strategies(RCS) to preschool children with disabilities during their play actives. RCS, comprising development of sensitivity and responsiveness to child’s communication behavior, following the child’s lead and increasing the mutual reciprocity, were used to facilitate a conversational interaction between parent and child. A multiple baseline design across three parent-child dyads was used to prove the experimental control. Data were collected by recording a 10-minute video of their play with partial interval, time sampling. The results demonstrated that the maternal RCS had a significant influence on promoting the parent-child interaction and that this interaction was maintained after the intervention was completed. Increases in the reciprocity of parent-child and quality of interaction were noted. Implications for future research and practice, including the need to explore implementation factors related to the interaction between mother and children, are presented.
