Teaching Mands for information using “when”

Amy Sarrasin

ABSTRACT: Two adolescents with autism participated in programmes which involved the manipulation of establishing operations (EO) in order to increase the value of manding for information using “when”. Throughout their Individual Education Plan (IEP) in 2019/2020 information was withheld to evoke the request for “when.” The results demonstrated that one pupil exhibited zero mands for information initially which increased to 100% independently. While the
other pupil already used “when”; however, they continued to maintain this skill with high levels of independence. Therefore, effective teaching was implemented to teach the adolescents with autism to mand for information using “when?” through the use of vocal prompt fading.
