The utility of motivation and communication intervention in children with autism. (May 2014) This study compares the use of highly preferred items and low preferred items as targets during a receptive identification intervention designed for children on the autism spectrum. The child’s motivation for a specific item was evaluated prior to the intervention using a picture-exchange requesting session. This helped determined if motivation had any involvement with the speed of learning receptive identification. After intervention data was taken on the participants ability to generalize the taught words to other items. Two of the three participants recognized the generalized items and the third participant gained no new receptive identification skills during the study.
