Two procedures were used for training preschool children to emit a three-sequence response to a three-sequence verbal stimulus. For the four children in Group I the verbal stimulus was presented simultaneously with the visual stimulus, whereas the four children in Group II were presented with the verbal stimulus only once preceding the presentation of the visual stimulus. Training was programmed in three phases starting with a single item and gradually increasing to the three-item terminal behavior. Results indicate that the procedures used to train the Group I children were more efficient in terms of number of trials and amount of time required to complete the program.
