Abstract

Although students who are moderately mentally handicapped have been trained to perform many skills necessary to enhance community functioning; there is a paucity of research on teaching emergency procedures. In this study, a systematic replication of previous work focusing on fire safety, three students were trained to communicate an emergency (dial 911), apply first aid for minor injuries, apply a plastic bandage to a minor injury, and apply first aid for choking. Skill acquisition was monitored via a multiple baseline design and maintenance probes were administered between six and twelve weeks after training had been completed. Results are discussed in light of the maintenance of skills that are not practiced frequently.
