- In behavior—the willingness to respond effectively to adult guidance. To benefit from language instruction, a child must be able to cooperate in the teaching process.
To benefit from language instruction, a child must be able to consistently cooperate in the teaching process. If this is not yet present, start first with the behavior program Spectacular Bond: Reaching the Child with Autism (http://amzn.to/1fu0WnL).
