Can Emotions Be Taught to a Low Functioning Autistic Child?
Stafford, Nikki
Early Child Development and Care, v164 p105-26 Oct 2000
Examined whether emotion labels could be taught to a low-functioning, nonverbal autistic child. Introduced four emotions (happy, angry, sad, surprised) over 6 months through visual cues (photographs of known people) within an existing home-based behavioral intervention program. Using novel photographs of familiar and unfamiliar people, showed that the emotions had been learned and generalized to the novel photographs. (Author/KB)
