Abstract:
The present study examined the teaching program for a student with developmental and hearing disabilities to acquire retrieval skills using the mail function of the cell phone. The participant was required in the community stores to manipulate the cell phone. When he was given the mails, he read the object's names, bought the requested goods, and retrieved them to the persons who requested goods. During the retreival sessions, two kinds of mail were sent to the participant on the way of the community stores, one was to add a new object to the list of requested goods, and the other was to delete an object which had been requested before going to the store. Sessions were conducted both in a laboratory and community settings. Before all sessions, manipulation training of cell phone was conducted. After this training, pretest was held in the community stores, and simulation training using total-task presentation method was conducted in the laboratory room. Then, posttest, generalization, and maintenance tests were conducted in the community stores. Additionally, 'memorandum use test' was conducted to explore the possibility of using stored mails for memorandum when the participant was requested many things by mail. After the simulation training, the participant became able to add a new object or delete an object according to contents of mails. Generalization to another store and maintenance was made, and using mails for memorandum was made in memorandum use test.
