Effects of Direct Instruction on the Acquisition of Prepositions by Students with Intellectual Disabilities

Hicks, S.
Abstract:
This article examined the use of direct instruction for teaching the use of prepositions to students with intellectual disabilities. Two African-American middle school boys were included in the study. Each had been diagnosed with multiple disabilities, but had sufficient verbal skills to communicate their basic needs. Results indicated a functional relationship between direct instruction and the students’ use of and response to prepositions. Direct instruction appeared to be an effective approach to teach prepositions to students with intellectual disabilities. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI).
