Acquisition and Maintenance of Exercise Skills under Normalized Conditions by Adults with Moderate and Severe Mental Retardation.
King, Diane; Mace, F. Charles
Mental Retardation, v28 n5 p311-17 Oct 1990
Three older adults with severe/moderate mental retardation learned aerobic-type exercises in a group setting using a system of prompts and contingent praise. Prompt fading facilitated maintenance of the exercise skills in the absence of instruction, and skills were maintained at a nine-month follow-up assessment. However, only slight increases in endurance were observed. (JDD)
