Communication Intervention on the Playground: A Case Study on Teaching Requesting to a Young Child with Autism.
Sigafoos, Jeff; Littlewood, Rachel
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v46 n3 p421-29 Sep 1999
Opportunities for teaching a young child with autism to request more play were created at multiple points on the playground by momentarily interrupting the child's ongoing play using the behavior chain interruption strategy. The intervention resulted in high rates of correct requesting which were maintained with a new teacher and generalized to a related situation. (Author/DB)
