A lack of eye contact in infants diagnosed with autism may hinder their ability to acquire later nonverbal and verbal skills (Risley, 1986). This is a direct replication of Morrison (1999) who was able to increase eye contact levels in children with autism without using instruction. Instead verbal instructions, environment cues were established to signal when the participant should make eye contact with the researcher.
