Notes

Abstract: This review involved a systematic search and analysis of studies aimed at teaching
individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to ask questions (i.e., teaching mands for
information). A systematic search of databases, reference lists, and journals identified 21
studies that met predetermined inclusion criteria. Included studies were then
summarized in terms of (a) participant characteristics, (b) dependent variables (e.g.,
types of question-asking skills that were taught), (c) intervention procedures, (d) research
designs, and (e) outcomes. All 21 studies reported that participants acquired or improved
in the targeted question-asking skills. The most common intervention components
included (a) echoic prompts and systematic fading procedures (e.g., time delay), (b)
positive reinforcement via provision of requested information and/or access to preferred
items or activities, and (c) contriving situations to motivate specific questions (i.e.,
creating establishing operations). Implications for practitioners and directions for future
research are discussed.
