A Comparison of within- and across-Session Progressive Time Delay Procedures for Teaching Sight Words to Individuals with Cognitive Delays
Casey, Sean D.
Behavior Analyst Today, v9 n3-4 p162-171 2008
The effectiveness of within-session and across-session variations of a progressive time delay procedure for teaching sight words was evaluated for five participants with cognitive delays. Participants were exposed to five target stimuli using two variations of progressive time delay procedures in an alternating treatments design, followed by the most effective variation being applied to teach all target stimuli. Data indicated that the within-session time delay procedure was the most effective procedure for each participant. Implications for classroom instructional procedures using progressive time delay are discussed. (Contains 3 tables and 3 figures.)
