Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of a 2-D virtual reality (VR) program for training people with intellectual disabilities to shop. Study Design: Pretest and posttest quasi-experimental design. Participants: Sixteen persons with intellectual disabilities (age 17-23 years; IQ = 40-54). Intervention: A VR program or a conventional program training them in supermarket-shopping skills. Main Outcome Measure: Checklist for supermarket-shopping skills. Results: Participants in both training groups showed significant improvement. There was no significant difference in effectiveness between the two methods. Conclusions: The VR program appears effective in training people with intellectual disabilities in an important community living skill.
