A Comparison of Intraverbal and Listener Training for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Kodak, Tiffany; Paden, Amber R.
Analysis of Verbal Behavior, v31 n1 p137-144 Jun 2015
The present investigation compared acquisition of intraverbals and listener behavior by function, feature, and class (FFC) for two children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We also measured tacts during listener training to evaluate whether higher levels of tacts predicted the emergence of intraverbal behavior following training. The results showed that intraverbal training required as many or fewer sessions to reach the mastery criterion than listener training by FFC, and intraverbal training consistently produced emergent listener behavior. In comparison, listener training by FFC did not consistently lead to the emergence of intraverbal behavior.
