Learning Pointing and Picture Recognition
The following clip demonstrates how a therapist uses a variety of strategies, including labelling and hand over hand instruction, to teach Leighdionne, a young girl with autism, basic skills such as pointing and making choices. The therapist also works on expanding her recognition of words. Leighdionne struggles both in identifying the objects ('sun', 'lion') and in following simple instructions (e.g. 'close book').
