  • Description: We trained 3 mothers of children with autism to create, implement, and systematically fade scripts to promote vocal initiations during play. All 3 children's scripted and unscripted initiations increased after the introduction and fading of scripts, and unscripted initiations were maintained at the 2‐week follow‐up. The results indicate that parents of children with autism can successfully implement script‐fading procedures in their homes and that these procedures are effective methods to increase vocal initiations during play.
