Manual Skill Training of Retarded Children.
Pomerantz, David J.
AAESPH Review, v1 i1 p1-12 Sep 1975
In an on-going pilot study, training procedures previously found successful with moderately and severely retarded adolescents and adults have been adapted to teaching trainable retarded children (6-, 8-, and 10-years-old) to assemble a 14-piece coaster brake. Modifications in the carefully detailed task analysis approach have included the need for new formats and feedback strategies. Preliminary data indicates a slow but regular rate of progress in the Ss' skill acquisition. (CL)
