Teaching Communication Skills To Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

Research Study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of training parents to teach their child how to make communication requests that can replace their challenging behaviors.
To participate, your child must:
• Be between the ages of 3-9 years old.
• Have an ASD educational classification for receiving IEP supports or have an ASD diagnosis
• Demonstrate difficulties in communication, particularly in requesting what they want or need.
• Exhibit challenging behaviors (e.g. mild aggression, screaming, throwing, running off, etc.).
You must be willing to learn the intervention via telehealth training, create a video model to use with your child, and implement the intervention with your child. Each session will be about 20 minutes, 4 days per week across 2-3 months. You will be compensated $25 gift card for your participation after you complete 4 sessions.
