Effectiveness of Gestural and Physical Guidance Prompts as a Function of Type of Task.
Hourcade, Jack J.
Education and Training in Mental Retardation, v23 n1 p38-42 Mar 1988
The study investigated relationships between type of prompt and type of task by teaching 32 mentally retarded adults two tasks (visual discrimination and a motoric assembly task) using two types of prompts (gestural and physical guidance). Results failed to support either the traditional response prompts hierarchy or the existence of a prompt-task interaction. (Author/DB)
