Description

This presentation will discuss the methodology and findings of three single-case design studies that investigated traditional drill and practice (TDP) and incremental rehearsal (IR) as methods for teaching functional sight words to adolescents with intellectual disabilities (ID). Attendees will learn about best practices in teaching sight words to students with ID, how to deliver computer-based TDP and IR, considerations in measuring acquisition, retention, and maintenance, and implications for practice and future research.
