Learning Receptive Language Skills

Video Summary

The following clip provides excellent examples of poor eye contact in ASD and therapy for receptive language deficits. To teach Antonio the phrase 'stand up, the therapist repeatedly associates these words with Antonio's movement from a sitting to standing position, often prompting the movement by touching his arms and legs. Antionio appears distracted throughout, making almost no eye contact with his therapist despite her repeated efforts to gain his gaze before giving him instruction.
