The Discrimination of Object Names and Object Sounds in Children with Autism: A Procedure for Teaching Verbal Comprehension
Eikeseth, Svein; Hayward, Diane W.
Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, v42 n4 p807-812 Win 2009
We assessed whether 2 preschoolers with autism learned to discriminate between the sounds of musical instruments more rapidly than the spoken names of the instruments. After the children learned the sound-object relations more rapidly than the name-object relations, we then evaluated a prompt-delay procedure for transferring stimulus control from the sounds to the names of the instruments. The prompt-delay procedure facilitated the acquisition of name-object relations for both children. (Contains 1 figure.)
