Golloher, Andrea N. – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
This study investigated the use of an adapted shared reading protocol with three children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in home settings. Using a multiple baseline across participants design, this investigation replicated and extended a previous investigation by Browder et al. to children with ASD and home settings. In addition, this study…

Ledford, Jennifer R.; King, Seth; Harbin, Emilee R.; Zimmerman, Kathleen N. – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Social skills interventions designed to increase pro-social interactions for individuals with autism spectrum disorders are critical, but the relative effectiveness of these interventions is not well understood. More than 250 single-case design studies in 113 articles were reviewed and described in terms of participants, settings, arrangements,…

Qi, Cathy H.; Barton, Erin E.; Collier, Margo; Lin, Yi-Ling; Montoya, Charisse – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
The purpose of this systematic review was to synthesize 22 single-case research design (SCRD) studies on social stories intervention for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We used the What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) SCRD standards to analyze study rigor and evidence of a causal relation. We calculated four nonoverlap indices to…

Today, the use of formal preference assessments, including paired-stimulus preference assessments, is widely utilized to help determine which items to use as reinforcers during intervention. A second way to determine potential reinforcers is to analyze multiple dimensions of a stimulus in the moment, a procedure known as in-the-moment reinforcer…

Lorah, Elizabeth R. – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
There has been an increased interest in research evaluating the use of handheld computing technology as speech-generating devices (SGD) for children with autism. However, given the reliance on single-subject research methodology, replications of these investigations are necessary. This study presents a replication with variation, of a method for…

Vismara, Laurie A.; McCormick, Carolyn E. B.; Wagner, Amy L.; Monlux, Katernia; Nadhan, Anna; Young, Gregory S. – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Telehealth training may benefit parents' use of early intervention for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This study is one of the few randomized trials to compare telehealth parent training in the Early Start Denver Model (P-ESDM) with a community treatment-as-usual, early intervention program. Parents were randomized to 12 weekly…

Buggey, Tom; Crawford, S. Caroline; Rogers, Chelsea L. – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Video self-modeling (VSM) uses a method called "feedforward" to provide children the opportunity to view themselves as they perform in a more advanced or appropriate manner than they do presently. Typically, this is accomplished through the careful editing of videos. Studies on VSM and social skills with children on the autism spectrum…

Emmons, Christine L.; Zager, Dianne – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Collaborative teaming among specialists can enhance educational success by leveraging resources and building capacity to maximize effectiveness. Special educators' change in perceptions of their efficacy as collaborators in the education of students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) was studied before and after completing a year-long federally…

Bassette, Laura A.; Taber-Doughty, Teresa; Gama, Roberto I.; Alberto, Paul; Yakubova, Gulnoza; Cihak, David – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of a video modeling (VM) intervention in conjunction with a system of least prompts (SLP) to teach safety skills using cell phones to students with a moderate intellectual disability. A multiple-probe design across three participants was used to assess student acquisition in taking and sending a…

Saloviita, Timo – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Facilitated communication (FC) has been interpreted as an ideomotor phenomenon, in which one person physically supports another person's hand and unconsciously affects the content of the writing. Despite the strong experimental evidence against the authenticity of FC output, several studies claim to support its validity based on idiosyncrasies…

Reichle, Joe; Byiers, Breanne J.; Reeve, Amanda – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) frequently exhibit generalization errors, but many instructional programs fail to address this deficit. Generalization errors encompass when the learner should extend the use of a newly taught behavior to other contexts but does not (under-generalization), as well as when he or she should not use the…

Sartini, Emily; Knight, Victoria F.; Spriggs, Amy D.; Allday, R. Allan – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
As increasing literature emerges to address text comprehension deficits for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), educators often struggle to design interventions resulting in successful generalization of comprehension skills. This evaluative review of literature explored the inclusion of and methods used in generalization of text…

Zagona, Alison L.; Mastergeorge, Ann M. – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Peer-mediated instruction and intervention (PMII) is a systematic, evidence-based method for addressing the social-communication needs of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Despite existing research on this practice, gaps remain in the implementation of PMII. The purpose of this empirical review was to examine recent applications of…

Pennington, Robert; Flick, Allison; Smith-Wehr, Kendra – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
In the current study, we examined the effects of response prompting strategies (i.e., constant time delay, system of least prompts) and frames on sentence writing for three participants, ages 7 to 12, with moderate intellectual disability. We used a concurrent multiple probe across behaviors design to evaluate the efficacy of the intervention…

Mathews, Therese L.; Vatland, Christopher; Lugo, Ashley M.; Koenig, Elizabeth A.; Gilroy, Shawn P. – Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, 2018
Social skills training programs have increasingly enlisted same-age typical peers as instructors in the teaching of social skills to children with high-functioning autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The inclusion of peers in the teaching process has been found to be a critical component in these programs. Despite strong support for incorporating…
