Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v40 n1 p185-189 Spr 2007
An important area in the learning and development of individuals with disabilities is the acquisition of independent, age-appropriate leisure skills. Three adults with autism and mental retardation were taught to access specific Internet sites using backward chaining and most-to-least intrusive prompting. The number of independent steps completed in the task analysis increased following training. (Contains 1 figure.)
