In the current study, the researchers evaluated the effects of simultaneous prompting and computer-assisted instruction on the story-writing responses of 3 males with autism, 7 to 10 ears of age. Classroom teachers conducted all probe and training sessions. The researchers used a multiple baseline across participants design to evaluate the efficacy of the intervention. In addition, they used pre-posttest measures to assess the generalization of acquired skills across untrained story topics and different response topographies. The data indicated that simultaneous prompting and computer-assisted instruction were effective in improving the story-writing skills of all 3 participants. Two of the participants demonstrated maintenance and generalization of trained responses. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
