A Comparison of the Doman-Delacato Method and Behavior Modification Method Upon the Coordination of Mongoloids.
Fredericks, H. D. Bud
In order to examine the effects of two treatment methods on the coordination of mongoloid children, 72 mongoloid children (ages 7 to 12) were randomly assigned to groups receiving either the Doman Delacato method or behavior modification procedures utilizing social reinforcement. The children were pre and posttested by the Doman Delacato Profile and a modified version of the Lincoln-Oseretsky Motor Development Scale. At the end of the 9-week treatment, results showed no significant differences between the two treatment methods although the children receiving the behavior modification treatment demonstrated at the conclusion of the study more improved coordination than did the children receiving the Doman Delacato method. Implications and recommendations for further study were outlined. (RD)
