The effects of self-evaluation and response restriction on letter and number reversal in young children.

The effects of self-evaluation and response restriction on letter and number reversal in young children.

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community.
Date: August 2004
Creator: Strickland, Monica Kathleen
Description: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of a training package consisting of response restriction and the reinforcement of self-evaluation on letter reversal errors. Participants were 3 typically developing boys between the age of 5 and 7. The results indicated that the training package was successful in correcting reversals in the absence of a model during training and on application tests. These improvements maintained during subsequent follow-up sessions and generalized across trainers. Fading was not always necessary in correcting reversals, but was effective in correcting reversals that persisted during the overlay training procedures. The advantages to implementing a systematic intervention for reducing letter reversal errors in the classroom, as well as directions for future research, are discussed.
