This study attempts to determine the impact that technology has on the acquisition of speech in children with autism, compared to a teacher directed model of communication. The researcher attempts to uncover the disparities that currently exist in the research in order to better understand how speech might be enhanced by technological and teacher directed interventions. The problem addressed includes an examination of how speech acquisition can be better mastered independently by children with autism related disorders, assuming that children with autism have the ability to acquire speech independently.

From the Paper:

"There is evidence suggesting that the number of patients diagnosed with autism has steadily increased in recent years (MRN, 2005; Rutter, 2000). While scientists are still working diligently to uncover the causes of autism, they have yet to completely understand this disorder and develop a single theory that explains why someone will develop autism and who might be more susceptible to developing the disorder (MRN, 2005; Happe, 1998)."
