Sentence Production after Listener and Echoic Training by Prelingual Deaf Children with Cochlear Implants
Golfeto, Raquel M.; de Souza, Deisy G.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v48 n2 p363-375 Sum 2015
Three children with neurosensory deafness who used cochlear implants were taught to match video clips to dictated sentences. We used matrix training with overlapping components and tested for recombinative generalization. Two 3?×?3 matrices generated 18 sentences. For each matrix, we taught 6 sentences and evaluated generalization with the remaining 3 sentences. We also tested for emergent tacting with all 18 video clips. After training, the participants were able to match untrained video clips to recombined dictated sentences. Tacts of both trained and untrained video clips increased for all participants.
