The substantial demand for behavior-analytic treatment of early childhood autism has been associated with rapid dissemination of treatment procedures to practitioners and caregivers. This level of demand could plausibly induce premature dissemination of treatments that do not yet have sufficient empirical support. We argue that this might have happened with the use of fluency training for learners with autism and identify four areas of research that are necessary to ensure that dissemination efforts are better matched to the available empirical support for this instructional strategy.

    This article was not as good as I had hoped. I was hoping for more examples and breakdown of approaches to use.

    This article leads me to think more critically about the presentations I sit through at conferences. The questions on the quiz were relevant to the material that I need to retain from this article – not obscure facts that are useless to me later. I will reflect on this material for years to come!
