Brief Report: Caregiver Strategy Implementation--Advancing Spoken Communication in Children Who Are Minimally Verbal
Shire, Stephanie Y.; Shih, Wendy; Kasari, Connie
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v48 n4 p1228-1234 Apr 2018
Research has demonstrated that caregivers' use of intervention strategies can support their children's social engagement and communication. However, it is not clear to what degree caregivers must master the strategies to effectively support gains in social communication, specifically, core challenges such as joint attention language (comments). Twenty-two minimally verbal school-age children with autism received a social communication intervention with caregiver coaching. Through 10 min caregiver-child play interactions at eight time points, significant increase were found in children's spontaneous language. Further, children's spontaneous language was associated with caregivers' implementation. Minimum benchmarks for caregivers' total intervention implementation are discussed.
