Effects of Simulation Training on Making Purchases with a Debit Card and Tracking Expenses
Rowe, Dawn A.; Cease-Cook, Jennifer; Test, David W.
Career Development for Exceptional Individuals, v34 n2 p107-114 Aug 2011
This study used a multiple probe design across participants to examine the effects of classroom simulation using static picture prompts on students' ability to acquire, maintain, and generalize skills necessary to use a debit card to make a purchase and track their expenses. Results demonstrated a functional relationship between simulated instruction and students' ability to use a debit card to make a purchase and track their expenses in a check register. In addition, all three students maintained their newly acquired skills for 4 weeks and were able to generalize skills to three different community sites. Implications for practice and recommendations for future research are described. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
