Teaching One to One Correspondence to Students with Down syndrome
Objective & Project Description
The purpose of the project was to examine the effectiveness of the simultaneous prompting procedure (SP) when teaching students with Down syndrome ages 5 and 6 to count objects (e.g., crayons, blocks, etc.) using accurate one-to one correspondence. Quantities ranged from 1 to 5. The students attended a university laboratory school that serves students with Down syndrome. A multiple-probe single subject research design across quantities and replicated across participants was implemented. Three of the four students learned to count quantities 1 – 5 and generalized across teachers within the classroom and on the playground. Limitations included undocumented changes in the independent variable.
