Education and Training in Mental Retardation, v25 n3 p286-91 Sep 1990
The relative effectiveness of 3 instructional procedures (sight word, fading, tactile-kinesthetic) in teaching 32 students (age 9-20) with moderate to severe mental retardation to read a series of monosyllabic words was investigated. No one experimental condition was superior to the others, and no skill acquisition differences were found in reading untaught words. (Author/JDD)
