Formatted abstract
Many idiosyncratic & subtle behaviors of children with autism are now seen as having potential communicative significance, even though they may begin as reflexive or nonpurposeful responses. The study of these prelinguistic communicative behaviors in normally developing children has been of interest for some time. There is growing interest in the communicative potential of prelinguistic behaviors in children with developmental disabilities. The present article reviews some of the behaviorally based research in this area & discusses the links between prelinguistic communication development & functional communication training in children with autism. Theoretical & practical implications are considered & areas for future research are highlighted.
