CopyThe study examined the differential efficacy, maintenance and generalisation effects of verbal self-instructional (VSI) training on reading for disabled children. Type of subculture (tribal vs. nontribal) is crossed with type of cognitive stage (concrete vs. formal operation). The subjects were trained for 10 weeks and retested for post-test and follow-up data. Whilst VSI training was beneficial to nontribals and children of formal operational stage, it failed in the case of tribals and children of concrete operational stage. VSI effects were maintained over four months.
