Three mentally retarded women were given four days of training in cleaning the bath area of a standard hotel room and not given training for other aspects of room cleaning. The results of an ABAB single subject design showed that with training on the bath area only, the time needed to clean the entire room decreased during training and increased during reversal phases. The improvement in speed was not a function of decreased work quality. A technology of vocational habilitation of the retarded can be fostered by further research on response covariation.
