A reduction in distance from the adult was observed in both groups. A reduce in silence (or increase in sounds) was observed within the Food green 3 Contingent group. The frequency of seeking at adult was higher in SF vs. SF only in the Contingent group. No effect on stereotypies. SF sessions min SF modified paradigm: see above The second phase was various in two groups (imitative or contingently responsive) Unfamiliar experimenter Social attention (searching at adult) Social responsiveness (vocalizingsmiling,becoming closetouching adult,engaging in reciprocal play) Autistic behaviors (stereotypies,playing alone,inactivity) Object play behavior Imitation recognition The frequency of looking,vocalizingsmiling,touching,and engaging in reciprocal play increased from pre to post intervention extra inside the Imitation than within the Contingent group. A reduction in Autistic behaviors (playing alone and inactivity),a rise in Object play behavior and in imitation recognition have been observed from pre to postintervention a lot more inside the Imitation than in Contingent Condition group. Social consideration (looking at adult) Novel object play behaviors Imitation ability Children in the Imitation group vs. those within the Contingent group showed greater frequency of hunting and novel object play behaviors in the course of the imitation phase. Youngsters inside the Imitation group showed larger frequency of hunting and imitation behaviors than those in the contingent group inside the SP phase.

A substantial boost in Social behaviors was also discovered within the SP phase following the second session.
