Poster Presentation

Research Project Abstract

The purpose was to evaluate the effects of Copy-Cover-Compare (CCC) on the acquisition of spelling words for a 16-year-old high school student with Autism in a resource room. Permanent product within a changing criterion design was used to measure correct and incorrectly spelled words. For CCC, the worksheet had the target spelling words written in a column. The participant looked at the written target word and copied the word. Then, he folded or covered the worksheet in half so that the modeled words were hidden, wrote the word from memory, and then unfolded the worksheet to compare his spelling of the word with model. The results showed that Copy-Cover-Compare was extremely effective with spelling word acquisition. CCC displayed many strengths including kinesthetic learning, repeated trials and guided teaching.
