Improving the Visual Discrimination of Mentally Retarded Children: A Training Strategy.
Crawford, Katheryn Alice; Siegel, Paul S.
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v87 n3 p294-301 Nov 1982
Eighty-two educable and trainable mentally retarded children (6-18 years old) judged whether a series of visual stimuli matched a standard. With each judgment the investigator verbalized "right" or "wrong" and then provided full feedback of cue similarities and differences that supported each judgment. Trained Ss exhibited total intradimensional transfer; the conrol Ss, none. (Author/SW)
