"Wells...wouldn't stop when they called him."

Video Summary

Children at risk for autism may not consistently respond to their name or check back with their parents. Georgia, Wells' therapist, describes how she taught Wells to not only stop, but to return to his parents when they called him. She did this by breaking down the various components of this command and practicing it in different situations and with other people.

"So we put into his program, first teaching him stop and go, let's say with vechicles on a table."
