Increasing the Occupational Level of a Passive Man through the Employment of Mentally Handicapped Peer Caregivers.
Lancioni, G. E.; And Others
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v18 n1 p64-67 1995
Three peer caregivers with moderate mental retardation worked to improve the occupation level of a passive man with profound mental retardation. The peer caregivers carried out meaningful activities with the trainee for 15-minute periods. The trainee received social reinforcement; the caregivers received tangible reinforcement. Use of multiple caregivers is recommended to ensure more extensive occupational and social interaction. (JDD)
