This case study investigated the efficacy of repeated storybook reading (RSR) with adult scaffolding as an intervention for a 3-year-old child with autism. An ABA single-subject design was employed. Results suggest that RSR encouraged spontaneous language use. Guidelines for using RSR with children with autism are provided. (Contains extensive references.) (Author)
