Abstract

Language skills in young children diagnosed with autism are often undeveloped or develop at a slower rate than typically functioning children. The current study examined the use of one recommended sequencing process for a four-year old child with a limited verbal repertoire. The results are incomplete at this time due an absence of responding. The loss of stimulus control after meeting mastery criteria for seven pictures caused a shift in research focus; when responding increases and stimulus control is re-established, the initial procedure should continue.
