Comparison of a Video-Based Assessment and a Multiple Stimulus Assessment to Identify Preferred Jobs for Individuals with Significant Intellectual Disabilities
Horrocks, Erin L.; Morgan, Robert L.
Research in Developmental Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v30 n5 p902-909 Sep-Oct 2009
The authors compare two methods of identifying job preferences for individuals with significant intellectual disabilities. Three individuals with intellectual disabilities between the ages of 19 and 21 participated in a video-based preference assessment and a multiple stimulus without replacement (MSWO) assessment. Stimulus preference assessment procedures typically involve giving participants access to the selected stimuli to increase the probability that participants will associate the selected choice with the actual stimuli. Although individuals did not have access to the selected stimuli in the video-based assessment, results indicated that both assessments identified the same highest preference job for all participants. Results are discussed in terms of using a video-based assessment to accurately identify job preferences for individuals with developmental disabilities. (Contains 4 tables and 3 figures.)
