Abstract

Abstract A 10-yr-old girl, carrying the diagnostic label of childhood autism, was trained to speak at a normal voice volume and acquired a labeling vocabulary, via an imitation learning paradigm which utilized a peer model. Results indicate that the modeling paradigm facilitated both volume training and label acquisition.
