Developing Compliance.
Hartley, Lisa
This case study describes an intervention to increase compliance with routine tasks in a 7-year-old boy with moderate mental retardation. Prior to intervention the boy was unable to complete a series of eight routine tasks associated with arriving at school and preparing for work. The highly structured intervention used picture prompts for each task as well as a tape recording which provided timing cues. If all tasks were completed within an 8-minute time frame, the subject received verbal social reinforcers. Baseline data indicated that it took the child an average of 29 minutes to complete the eight tasks. During the 11-day intervention phase, the boy took an average of 4 minutes to complete all tasks. During the 5 days of fading (when less adult attention was provided as reinforcement) he was able to complete the tasks in an average of 3 minutes. (DB)
