Generalization of Visual Discrimination by Mentally Retarded Children.
Berkell, Dianne E.
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v87 n3 p350-52 Nov 1982
The effects of varying training settings and objects on the development of skill generalization were studied with 60 retarded students (5-16 years old). Research procedures were identical for all groups except for the manipulation of settings and objects. A factorial analysis of covariance supported the prediction that the visual discrimination training would develop generalized avoidance skill by the students. (Author/SW)
