Increasing the independent responding of autistic children with unpredictable supervision

 
Multiple baseline analysis of responses of three autistic children (5-12 years old) revealed that unpredictable supervision (in which the therapist was present on a random, intermittent, and unpredictable basis) produced much higher levels of on-task responding during the therapist's absence. Analysis of work completed during the therapist's absence also favored the unpredictable supervision condition.
