Zig Engelmann's Low Performer's Manual--prerequisities for DI curriculum


In regards to severe learners and basic prerequisites for entry into DI curriculum

Our comment: The manual, while informative and useful in the whole, was originally written in the '70's and is dated in the occasional use of aversive contingencies. Current best practice emphasizes positive programming through positive reinforcement. This caveat does not discount the overall value of this manual in considerations of how to teach basic skills to severe learners.
