Acquisition and Generalization of Object-verb Phrase in a Student with Deaf and Intellectual Disability

Abstract:
This study evaluated effects of a teaching procedure of two-word sentence in a student with Deaf and intellectual disability. The training was conducted using video-taped stimulus and multiexpression modes (i.e., words writing and sign). In addition, the paradigm of stimulus equivalence and the technique of instructive feedback were introduced. Both are applied in order to enhance the efficiency of learning and facilitate the stimulus-class formation. The generalization of the acquired stimulus-response relation was tested in the following three conditions; the motions presented a) in a real situation, b)by different person, c) in different room and report them to a listener. Results showed that the trained relation was acquired and the untrained relations were also emerged. The transfer to expression was partly emerged. The generalization of stimulus-response relation was established in all three conditions in writing, but not in sign. Implications for future applications of this procedure in individuals with Deaf and intellectual disability are discussed.


Keywords: individuals with Deaf and intellectual disability, object-verb phrase, stimulus equivalence, multi-expression mode, instructive feedback
