A Study on Developing Communication Skill among Children with Autism Using Verbal Instruction
Developing communication skill among autistic individuals is very essential as they get it difficult to communicate with others which affect their daily life. Majority of children with autism struggle with communicative behaviors, which are the essential factors for social interactions. In order to improve the communication skills for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), many researchers have focused on developing effective interventions to treat these deficits. The aim of the study is to investigate the effectiveness of verbal instruction for children with autism to develop their communication skills. The intervention used for the study is to improve their social skill during an ongoing conversation. The study participants comprising of children with ASD were subjected to ‘Behavioral Intervention’ and interpreted using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS). Their response towards the intervention was analyzed and estimated using ‘Whole Interval Recording’. From the implication of the test findings, the therapeutic efficacy of the behavioral interventions for children with ASD could serve as an effective approach in improving their communication skills.
