Effects of Oral Motor Imitation Behavioral Fluency on Measures of Echoic Behavior
Garner, Dana
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The Pennsylvania State University
The proposed study examined the effects of behavioral fluency in oral motor imitation on echoic behavior in elementary children with autism. A multiple baseline multiple probe design was employed across students. The researcher examined (a) what are the effects of acquisition and behavioral fluency in a component oral motor skill on the composite skill of echoic behavior; and (b) does behavioral fluency in oral motor imitation result in retention of the target behavior for children with autism. Results of the study indicate behavioral fluency in oral motor imitation increases the behavior frequency of echoic measures of the target vocalization and that children with ASD retain echoic behavior over long periods of time.
