Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, v6 n1 p271-276 Jan-Mar 2012
Work, self-help, leisure, and hygiene skill deficits are often associated with Autistic Disorder, a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by pervasive impairments in socialization, communication, and repetitive and restricted behaviors or interests. A number of interventions have been established to assist individuals with these impairments. This paper is a review of the use of techniques specific to applied behavior analysis (ABA) as an intervention for these adaptive living skill deficits for individuals with autism. The current status and future directions for research are discussed.
