Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v18 n1 p67-79 Mar 1988
The study compared the effectiveness of a peer model and an adult model in teaching an expressive language task to four autistic boys (ages 7-10). Results indicated that all children learned from both models and few consistent differences occurred across the two conditions. Generalization and maintenance was also consistently high in both conditions. (Author/DB)
