Teaching Stimulus Classes to Encourage Independent Purchasing by Students with Severe Behavior Disorders.
Gardill, M. Cathleen; Browder, Diane M.
Education and Training in Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities, v30 n3 p254-64 Sep 1995
Three students (ages 12 and 13) with developmental disabilities and severe behavior disorders were taught independent purchasing skills. To bypass the need for money computation skills, discrimination between three stimulus classes of frequent purchases (vending machine snack, convenience store snack, lunch) were trained. Two students mastered the stimulus classes and generalized the skill to community purchases. (Author/DB)
