Wolfberg, Pamela J.; Schuler, Adriana L.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v23 n3 p467-89 Sep 1993
A multifaceted model to promote peer play was implemented with play groups including 3 children (ages 6-8) with autism, resulting in decreased isolate play and collateral gains in social play, and decreased stereotyped object play and collateral gains in functional object play. Advances in play behaviors were generalized and were accompanied by language gains. (Author/JDD)
