Examined effects of training six parents to use Enhanced Milieu Teaching with their preschoolers with autism/pervasive developmental disabilities. Found that parents learned strategies during 24 individual training sessions, generalized strategies to home interactions, and maintained procedure use at 6 months follow-up. Most children's complexity and diversity of productive language increased. Child effects generalized and maintained for four children. (Author/KB)
