Abstract

This study investigated whether students with moderate to severe cognitive disabilities would acquire related instructive feedback stimuli embedded in the prompt and consequent event, as well as unrelated instructive feedback stimuli that was delivered in the consequent event. The trainer used constant time delay to teach three food preparation skills (i.e., making cheese and crackers, waffles with syrup, and chocolate milk) to 4 elementary students, and instructive feedback stimuli were embedded within this procedure. Results indicate that constant time delay was effective in teaching 3 of the 4 students all three food preparation skills, and that 3 of the 4 students acquired some of the related instructive feedback stimuli. Three of the four students acquired 100% of the unrelated instructive feedback stimuli while the fourth student acquired 80% of this material.
