Comparison of Two Approaches for Identifying Job Preferences among Persons with Disabilities Using Video CD-ROM
Education and Training in Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities
This study examines effects of presenting motion video stimuli as job choice response options in single and paired-choice formats. Four adults (two males and two females) with disabilities in an adult day treatment program participated in the study. Five jobs represented in video on a CD-ROM were presented in single and paired-choice formats. Data indicates that all participants express preferences using the motion video by differentially responding to the five job videos. Findings were consistent with previous research indicating that, with the single operant approach, stimulus over-selectivity occurred. These results also suggested that video medium is a potentially useful method to present complex stimuli in choice responding arrangements.
