Physical Disabilities: Education and Related Services, v36 n2 p16-34 2017
As adults with Down syndrome (DS) age, their strength decreases resulting in difficulty performing activities of daily living. In the current study, we investigated the use of video modeling for teaching three adults with DS to perform weight lifting techniques. A multiple probe design across behaviors (i.e., lifts) was used to evaluate intervention effectiveness. Data indicated variable effects across participants and lifting techniques. Limitations and suggestions for future research are discussed.
