SOARES, Pedro Felipe dos Reis; ASSIS, Grauben José Alves de  and  BRINO, Ana Leda de Faria. Conditional control over sentence production: effects of the order of sentences' types in training. Acta comport. [online]. 2013, vol.21, n.2, pp.193-210. ISSN 0188-8145.

Recent study has demonstrated automatized overlapping words procedure as an effective method to teach colors conditional control on the active and passive voice sentence construction for four children that have learn problems at school. However, children did not shown conditional control over construction of new sentences, when recombination of the words presented in directed trained sentences was required; children were able to construct only active voice new sentences. The objective of the present study was investigate if the training order of two types of sentences could have an effect over the conditional control emergency and maintenance on the new sentences construction repertory. Four participants were first exposed to teaching of active voice sentence followed by passive voice sentence. Other four participants learned first passive voice sentence and then active one. According to the previous study all the participants learned how to construct sentences under conditional control. Therefore, the training was insufficient to all children produce a combinative repertory in new sentences under conditional control. The participants have correctly composed one or another type of sentence. Further studies may first comprehend different types of emergence tests of new sentences, before get evolved with teach and conditional control tests.
