Carr, Edward G.; Kologinsky, Eileen
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v16 n3 p297-314 Fall 1983
Six autistic children were trained to use their sign repertoire to make spontaneous requests of adults. Training consisted of imitative prompting, fading, and differential reinforcement, with aspects of incidental teaching. Ss displayed increased rate and variety of spontaneous sign requests and generalization of spontaneity across different adults and settings. (Author/CL)
