Generalized Imitation and Response-Class Formation in Children with Autism.
Young, Jill M.; And Others
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v27 n4 p685-97 Win 1994
An experimental analysis of imitation was conducted to examine the influence of response topography on generalization of imitation across three response types with four children (ages two to four) with autism. The study found that imitation generalized from reinforced training models to nonreinforced probe models within a response type but did not generalize across response types. (Author/DB)
