Motivating autistic children through stimulus variation

The study evaluated the differential effectiveness of two methods of presenting discrimination tasks with two autistic children (7 and 5 years of age). In a constant task condition, the common method of presenting a single task throughout a session was used. In a varied task condition, the same task was interspersed with a variety of other tasks.
