Clinic Notes: Pictorial Prompts and Autism

Several years ago my student, Leigh Grannon and I, presented a paper titled "The Effect of Pictorial Prompts on Verbal Interactions in a Child Diagnosed with Autism." This study used a personalized set of pictures with verbal prompts to establish verbal social interactions in a child with autism. Results indicated that the number of verbal social interactions made by the child with peers in a daycare setting increased and generalized to children and adults and in other settings.
I am now working on a paper that will use pictorial prompts to teach children with autism and other neuropsychological disorders how to behave at Christmas time. Many parent who bring their children to my clinic complain that the Christmas holidays are an especially difficult time for them. I plan to have the paper on my web site in time for the holidays.
