Generalization is a skill to be targeted in and of itself for the Autism population. Due to the deficits in social skills for this population, ABA programs may lack lessons that target generalization to the verbal community as this requires the individual in treatment to become their own speaker and listener, and adapt their behavior based off the ever-changing social world. This training addresses how to teach generalization at this advanced level, including identification of opportunities to target generalization to the verbal community.
