Children with autism show imitation deficits, leading to delayed communication development. This study highlights the efficacy of gestural, oral, and verbal imitation training for young children with autism. Our questions are: Will training facilitate improvement in imitation? Can children generalize imitation skills? Will children initiate imitation more frequently after treatment?
