Abstract/Description: Children with autism often display deficits in the area of play. The research in this area has focused on teaching various play skills, however, there is minimal research on the use of a curriculum-based assessment linked to direct instruction on emerging play skills. The purpose of this study was to determine whether three preschool children with or at-risk for autism would learn and generalize targeted play activities chosen from a developmental play assessment. The children demonstrated increased spontaneous occurrence of identified activities during the short-term intervention. Generalization in the classroom did not occur. Maintenance was displayed for each child 7 weeks after completion of the study.
