Problem Solving and Strategy Production in Mentally Retarded Persons.
Ferretti, Ralph P.
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v10 n1 p19-31 1989
This review shows that mentally retarded children can produce problem-solving strategies if they comprehend the task requirements, share the experimenter's goal, and construct an optimal problem-solving representation. Instruction with multiple exemplars of a task can induce generalized strategy use, and nonvolitional mechanisms play a role in use of such strategies. (Author/JDD)
