Abstract

This study investigated the effectiveness of training parents to use a constant time delay procedure and PowerPoint to teach their son or daughter with Down syndrome to prepare three different recipes. The study also investigated whether or not individuals with Down syndrome can learn to generalize and maintain the skills using PowerPoint to prepare recipes across multiple exemplars and recipes. A multiple probe design across recipes and replicated across participants was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the procedure and its relative efficiency. Four individuals with Down syndrome and their parent(s) and direct support professionals participated in this study. The study was conducted in the kitchen of each individual's home. Results indicated that training parents to use constant time delay and PowerPoint was effective in teaching their children to prepare three different recipes.

KEYWORDS: cooking skills, training parents, constant time delay, multiple probe research design, adults with Down syndrome
