Description of The Effectiveness of Two Strategies for Teaching Students with Blindness and Mental Retardation



Abstract: To investigate the crossmodal transfer effects of verbal information to the performance of manual tasks, this study compared the effectiveness of two strategies--manual guidance only and manual guidance plus verbal prompts--with students whose multiple disabilities included total blindness and severe mental retardation. Within the framework of an alternating treatments design, the two strategies were differentially applied to two tasks. The results suggest that prompting methods that require shifting verbal information to the performance of a manual task may interfere with the learning of students with such multiple disabilities.
