Abstract

BANDINI, Carmen Silvia Motta et al. Effects of selection tasks on naming emergence in children. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.3, pp. 568-577. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722012000300017.

The aim of the present work - which was divided into two studies - was to investigate if, from teaching selection tasks, naming responses would be emitted without direct teaching. Nine children aged between 7 and 12 participated in the study. In each study, 12 abstract pictures and 12 pseudo words were utilized. The procedures were comprised of six sessions that encompassed selection tasks (name-picture relations) and naming tests (picture-name relations). When a participant met 100% correct responses in selection tasks, (s)he was exposed to a naming test. The difference among the studies was the presentation of an echoic behavior pre-test of the pseudo words. The results indicated variability in the participants' naming performance.
