Teaching Procedures for Neurologically Impaired and Retarded Children. Final Report.
Haupt, Edward J.; Le febvre, Andrienne
A 14-year-old nonverbal severely handicapped boy received instruction in receptive language based on learning a "yes-no" indicator response and a variety of basic concepts. The procedures included scaling of preferences for common objects and basic teaching procedures for a "yes-no" indicator response to the question, "Do you like this?" Additional procedures were concerned with auditory discrimination and object discrimination. The scaling and "yes-no" discrimination procedures were successfully performed. The auditory discrimination revealed difficulty in the task analysis, resulting in the elimination of correct unprompted responses. Auditory discrimination was found to be a more basic task than previously indicated. (Appended are three sample activity descriptions, including making a "yes" and "no" response.) (Author/CL)
