Interventions that teach social communication and play skills are crucial for the development of children with autism. The time delay procedure is effective in teaching language acquisition, social use of language, discrete behaviors, and chained activities to individuals with autism and developmental delays.

A multiple-baseline across subjects design demonstrated the success of this procedure to teach multiple-step social play sequences.
