Abstract

Two adults with intellectual disabilities were taught practical money skills within a stimulus equivalence training procedure taken from the PEAK equivalence relational training system. The participants were taught to accurately count and select combinations of money of five different values, in the presence of an object worth a specific value and combinations of coins worth the same value. The results of this study found that the PEAK program 12L: Monetary Exchange was successful in training two adults with intellectual disabilities and other co-occurring disorders how to accurately count five values as well as derive relations between two values and an object. The first participant mastered two complete levels of stimuli whereas the second participant mastered on complete level of stimuli before training was terminated due to behavioral variables.
