Changes following community living skills training: A controlled study (pages 109-111)

Fifty‐seven adults with mild to moderate learning disability served as participants in a community living skills training programme. Twenty‐nine were trained using in vivo techniques, 13 were taught using classroom techniques and 15 acted as a no treatment control group. Assessments of community living skills and adaptive behaviour found those receiving in vivo training performed significantly better than the other groups. Eventual placement in the community reflected this superiority.
