The Preschool Life Skills curriculum has been used to teach functional communication, instruction following, friendship skills, and tolerance to typically developing preschoolers. The purpose of this study is to teach three of the curriculum’s skills - following single-step instructions, following multiple-step instructions, and requesting adult assistance to an eight-year-old public-school student with autism. To plan for generalization, common stimuli from the general education setting were used to teach these skills. Throughout the study, the participant’s performance was assessed during observations in the general education classrooms.
