A Comparison of Procedures in Teaching Self-Help Skills: Increasing Assistance, Time Delay, and Observational Learning.
Schoen, Sharon F.; Sivil, Eileen O.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v19 n1 p57-72 Mar 1989
The study with four pairs of developmentally delayed preschoolers found a slight but discernible advantage of using the time delay procedure rather than the increasing assistance procedure to teach complex, chained-response self-help skills. Considerable learning also resulted solely from the observation of instruction. (Author/DB)
