Generalized Imitation and the Mand: Inducing First Instances of Speech in Young Children with Autism.
Ross, Denise E.; Greer, R. Douglas
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v24 n1 p58-74 Jan-Feb 2003
A rapid generalized motor imitation sequence was presented to five non-vocal children (ages 6-7) with autism before an opportunity to imitate a model's vocalizations. The presentation was faded by presenting an opportunity to vocally imitate without the sequence followed by an opportunity to independently mand. All participants began to vocalize.
