Three preschoolers diagnosed with autism were taught how to expressively label common food items using video instruction with and without embedded text. Twenty unknown stimuli were randomly assigned to either the embedded text or no-embedded text condition. Using a commercially available video editing program, a DVD was created that presented test stimuli (photographs of food items) with the auditory instruction: “What is it?” followed by the auditory presentation of the name of the stimulus. Stimuli in the embedded text condition also included the typed name of the item below the picture.
