Abstract

Matching-to-sample skills are involved in language acquisition and the development of basic reading and counting abilities. The rapid, even errorless, induction of matching performances in young children and individuals with mental retardation was demonstrated here through the structuring of a visual array so as to promote detection of the relevant stimulus. Implications for theory and application are discussed.
