Résumé
Three case studies are presented to investigate the possibility of evaluating
memory and cognitive capacities of severe intellectual disability with attention given
to the ecological environment. Two 22-year-old male patients and a 27-year-old
male patient, all three with severe intellectual disability with no verbal communication
skills, were evaluated with a new and original paradigm adapted to study
cognition in humans from experimental paradigms. We developed a test based on
animal models to complement the “home” scale of the Adolescent and Adult
Psychoeducational Profile (AAPEP), an assessment instrument designed for
adolescents and adults with severe developmental disabilities. Results show that
the new instrument is helpful, not only to staff members who can better understand
the poor performances of their patients in daily life activities but also in the
elaboration of individual acquisition plans. These preliminary results demonstrate
the interest in developing a larger controlled study and in publishing our procedure.
