This chapter focuses on naturalistic behavioral interventions for treating children with autism spectrum disorders. It presents one representative example—pivotal response training—which focuses on the training of “pivotal” behaviors that are assumed to lead to widespread changes in other behaviors. It then discusses specific target behaviors; interventionists; parental involvement; and current issues in naturalistic behavioral strategy implementation.
