Social initiation and communication deficits are hallmarks of autism. Mand training provides a method to teach children to ask for what they want and to initiate interactions with others. This session will cover the basic principles and procedures of teaching children to make requests. It will include techniques to establish motivation, to teach children to approach other people, and to develop a broad range of effective requesting behaviors.
