Abstract: The present study was designed to investigate the behavior-modification techniques of modeling and chaining as they might apply to retardate training in an industrial setting. Thirty-two moderately and mildly retarded (IQ 40-60) male and female adults (age 16 and over) employed in a sheltered workshop were given training trials on an assembly task, using four different assembly patterns, and four methods - verbal instructions, concrete modeling, combined verbal instructions and modeling, and chaining., A Latin-square repeated-measures design was used, so that subjects received each method in a different pattern.
