Use of a Progressive Time Delay Procedure To Teach Receptive Vocabulary.
Morgan, Robert L.
Progressive time delay is presented as a nonintrusive method of teaching receptive vocabulary to a 5-year-old girl with severe mental retardation. The girl was trained in pointing to photographs of various unfamiliar objects when the object was named by the teacher. Results indicate that the presentation of a time delay procedure resulted in a variable, accelerating trend in the percentage of pictures correctly identified. The procedure was effective in increasing the percentage of receptive vocabulary words recognized by the subject and, in addition, the subject consistently verbally identified pictures once she identified them receptively.
