Procedures for Training Neurologically Involved Children to Respond to Sequentially Presented Verbal Stimuli.
McReynolds, Leija V.
Auditory sequencing problems were seen as contributing heavily to neurologically involved children's language impairment, and several procedures for training auditory sequencing were explored. Five of the procedures were found to contribute considerably to an efficient and effective training program. These procedures included (1) the immediate initiation of two-choice discrimination training, (2) differential reinforcement, (3) a gradual approach to the final discrimination, (4) the use of prompts, and (5) explicit delineation of the contingencies between the stimulus and the behavior. The paper describes the five procedures and discusses the efficacy of using them in training three neurologically impaired children to respond appropriately to sequences of verbal stimuli. References and tables are included. (Author/RT)
