Research Project Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of tact training flashcards on the acquisition of receptive picture identification skills of a two-year-old student with Down syndrome in an early intervention classroom. Using event recording within a multiple baseline design, the researcher separated the target tacts into three groups of five: food, school, and home. The intervention used receptive tact training flashcards paired with a model, lead, test correction procedure to teach the participant 15 new tacts. The participant increased his known tacts from 5/20 correctly tacted flashcards to 20/20 correctly tacted flashcards. Receptive tact training was an effective intervention to teach the essential and foundational skill picture identification in language development.
