A Comparison of Methods for Teaching Receptive Language to Toddlers with Autism
Vedora, Joseph; Grandelski, Katrina
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v48 n1 p188-193 Spr 2015
The use of a simple-conditional discrimination training procedure, in which stimuli are initially taught in isolation with no other comparison stimuli, is common in early intensive behavioral intervention programs. Researchers have suggested that this procedure may encourage the development of faulty stimulus control during training. The current study replicated previous work that compared the simple-conditional and the conditional-only methods to teach receptive labeling of pictures to young children with autism spectrum disorder. Both methods were effective, but the conditional-only method required fewer sessions to mastery.
