Teaching object imitation skills using a modified errorless teaching procedure

Jalpa Shah

ABSTRACT: Children with autism show deficits in three broad area- communication, social skills and behaviour deficits. Many learners on the spectrum lack the ability to imitate, considered to be pre-requisite to learning complex language and social interactions (Meshais, et al., 2020). Although imitation skills are prioritised in early intervention programmes, the effectiveness of ABA interventions in increasing these skills is not well researched (Soorya eta., 2003). This study aims at demonstrating the impact of a modified errorless teaching procedure on acquisition of object imitation skills for an early learner in KS2.
