The purpose of this study was to teach play skills to a six year-old deaf male child with autism and to determine if these play skills would reduce self-stimulatory behaviors. The child was introduced to an independent play schedule duing two teaching phases using prompting and reinforcement procedures that have in the past been successful in teaching new skills to children with autism.
