Effects of Verbal Cues versus Pictorial Cues on the Transfer of Stimulus Control for Children with Autism
West, Elizabeth Anne
Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, v23 n4 p229-241 2008
The author examined the transfer of stimulus control from instructor assistance to verbal cues and pictorial cues. The intent was to determine whether it is easier to transfer stimulus control to one form of cue or the other. No studies have conducted such comparisons to date; however, literature exists to suggest that visual cues may be preferred. An adapted alternating treatment design within a multiple baseline design across subjects was used in this investigation to compare effects when teaching two functional skills to four young students with autism. Results indicate that it is more efficient to achieve transfer of stimulus control from instructor assistance to pictorial cues for three of the participants. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
