A Natural Language Teaching Paradigm for Nonverbal Autistic Children.
Koegel, Robert L.; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v17 n2 p187-200 Jun 1987
The study attempted to improve verbal language acquisition for two nonverbal four- and five-year-old autistic children by incorporating natural language interactions and motivational techniques. Broadly generalized treatment gains resulted from use of functional and varied stimuli, natural reinforcers, reinforcement of communicative attempts, and training within a natural interchange.
