In delayed match-to-sample (DMTS), there is a delay between the removal of the sample stimulus and the onset of the comparison array. Correct responding in this condition requires control by a conditional discriminative stimulus that is absent at the time of responding. An assessment of delayed matching was conducted to determine the delay thresholds, that is, the maximum delay at which accurate responding occurs, for 6 preschoolers with autism. Using empirical data to determine delay thresholds can help develop and establish appropriate curricula for improving delayed matching in children with autism.
