Authored by Mancil, GR, Conroy MA, and Haydon TF in J Autism Dev Disord, Volume 39, Issue 1, p. 149-163, (2009).

Article summary (posted Nov 11, 2010):


Applied behavior analysis (ABA) techniques can be combined to help children replace aberrant behavior with functional communication skills.

The purpose of this study was to see if two therapies (milieu therapy and functional communication training) could be combined to help children replace bad behavior with language. The authors measured increased communication skills, decreased use of prompts, and decreased bad behavior in three young children with autism at home and in the classroom. They found that prompts decreased with the therapy. Communication increased and bad behavior decreased to almost zero with therapy. All of these skills were generalized to untrained settings and persons.
