Description

Description

The purpose of the present study was to teach cooking skills to children with autism using matrix training in combination with video modeling. A non-concurrent multiple baseline design across two participants was used. Participants were first taught to imitate cooking related actions on objects using matrix training and video modeling. The video prompt was then removed. If recombinative generalization occurred with untrained actions, then training began with the subsequent matrix. Three different 3x3 matrices were used to teach the various cooking skills. After mastery and recombinative generalization occurred for each matrix, the students were presented with three picture recipes (brownies, pudding and rice) that included untrained matrix relations and instructed to complete the recipes. Results indicated that matrix training was effective in teaching cooking skills to children diagnosed with autism. These data have nt been presented externally.
