Group versus Individual Training in Establishing Generalization of Language Skills with Severely Handicapped Individuals.
Oliver, Peter R.; Scott, Teri L.
Mental Retardation, v19 n6 p285-89 Dec 1981
Eight severely mentally handicapped adults were taught two adjective concepts--one adjective using group training and one adjective using individual instruction. Although group and individual training were equally effective in terms of rates of acquisition, generalization was 45 percent greater when exemplars of each adjective concept were taught in group training.
