dc.description.abstract Previous research has shown that peer mediated approaches have been one of the most effective types of social intervention for school age children with autism. The present study examined the effectiveness of a peer mediated play intervention for increasing socialization skills in 3 toddlers, under the age of three, diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). There were three male participants diagnosed with autism and each were paired with a typical peer model, either of the same age or slightly older. The data indicate that toddlers with autism can increase their joint attention, social behavior and vocalizations when paired with typical peer models who have been coached as play partners. en
