The number of autism diagnoses has increased dramatically in the past decade (Association for Science in Autism Treatment). There are a variety of therapies that claim to be effective for treating autism. All clinicians providing treatment should demonstrate treatment efficacy so a non-effective treatment is not continued and also so an effective treatment is not discontinued. One type of therapy that has demonstrated treatment efficacy for children with autism is behavioral therapy. The current project demonstrates the implementation of a multiple baseline design to demonstrate treatment effectiveness while teaching children to answer questions.
