It is known that children with DD can learn first-aid skills and use whenever needed. Applying first-aid skills was taught to three inclusion students with autism through "first-aid skills training package". In the study multiple probe design with probe trials across behaviors was used. The findings indicated that first-aid skills training package was effective and the subjects maintained and generalized their acquired skills to the cuts, abrasions, and minor burns on their own or researcher's different parts of body and to different materials. Social validity data that was collected through social comparison revealed that the subjects could not accomplish these target behaviors before the intervention but their peers with normal development could accomplish these skills at 78% level.
