Teaching Interactive Signing in a Dialogue Situation to Mentally Retarded Individuals.
Keogh, Deborah; And Others
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v8 n1 p39-53 1987
Verbal prompts, modeling, physical guidance, positive reinforcement, fading, and chaining procedures were used to teach two nonverbal individuals (one severely and one moderately mentally retarded) an interactive signing dialogue in a naturalistic setting. Although clients learned to use signed communication, extensive training was required and only partial generalization occurred. (Author/JW)
