The purpose of our study was to compare the effectiveness of tablet- and instructor-delivered teaching (i.e., prompting and reinforcement) on the receptive identification of one-word concepts in children with autism spectrum ...
Using mobile technology to reduce engagement in stereotypy : a validation of decision-making algorithms
Mobile technology to reduce stereotypy
We developed an iOS app, the iSTIM, designed to support parents of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in reducing common repetitive vocal and motor behavior (i.e., stereotypy). The purpose of our study was to ...
Preliminary effects of conditioned establishing operations on stereotypy
(Springer Verlag, 2014)
We repeatedly paired preferred stimuli with known establishing properties and poster boards (i.e., neutral stimuli) to examine whether these poster boards would acquire the effects of a conditioned establishing operation ...

A 6-year-old boy diagnosed with autism participated in a pilot study showing that (a) television was associated with increased vocal stereotypy and (b) sitting was associated with lower levels of vocal stereotypy. ...
Generalization following tablet-based instruction in children with autism spectrum disorders
Given that children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) often require one-to-one individualized instruction, using tablets as teaching tools may represent an interesting option in classrooms with high student to teacher ...
Effects of background music on socially reinforced problem behaviors in children with autism spectrum disorders
Prior research has shown that background music may be effective at reducing problem behaviors maintained by non-social (sensory) reinforcement in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). However, no study has examined ...
Preliminary effects of parent-implemented behavioural interventions for stereotypy
(Taylor & Francis, 2016)
Objective: The purpose of our study was to replicate and extend previous research on using multicomponent behavioural interventions designed to reduce engagement in stereotypy by examining their effects when implemented ...
Newspaper coverage of autism treatment in Canada: 10-year trends (2004–2013)

Effects of reducing stereotypy on other behaviors: a systematic review
Researchers have shown that high levels of stereotypy in individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders were correlated with more significant impairments in social and adaptive functioning. Reducing stereotypy may ...
