The purpose of this study was to determine whether the use of match-to-sample discrete trial teachings along with positive reinforcement and response repetition correction would assist in developing an autistic high school student's reading comprehension. Data were collected once a week over 11 trials. The percentage of words comprehended by the participant was graphed by the researcher during each of the trials. The researcher used an ABAB reversal design. This study indicates that the participant's reading comprehension greatly improved during treatment and returned to baseline when treatment was removed. The results of this study also demonstrate that with the use of match-to-sample discrete trial teachings, sight word reading, positive reinforcement and response repetition correction, reading comprehension can be significantly improved for students within the autistic population
