The purpose of this workshop is to present how we can develop the mand for information using screept fading.
In our session we will present how this method was applied to a 12 year old child with TSA to mand information by asking “what?” and “where?”
For this case the procedure had four phases of script fading.
The results showed that the participant managed to obtain information in the targeted situations for which he was trained and then demonstrated the transfer of these abilities to new situations.
The request for information has also emerged in new situations. Considering all of this, the method used seems to be a success story in the current situation and can also be used to form other inquiries, for example using the question “who?”
This technique can also be used to develop conversion skills during play or during the meal time.
