Effects of computer-based cognitive mapping on reading comprehension for students with emotional behavioral disorders

Three students with behavior disorders who exhibited difficulty with reading in content area courses learned to use a computer program to create cognitive maps. Using a modified multiple-probe design across behaviors or stimulus sets, replicated across students, allowed for the evaluation of student performance on written and oral quizzes. All students improved reading comprehension of content material with this intervention.
