Verbal Behavior is based on the teaching principles of Applied Behavioral Analysis. Understanding Verbal Behavior strategies are key to developing and implementing a language-based curriculum for children with autism. Verbal behavior is a way of understanding the different purposes of language (e.g., a child may use language to ask for things, or to label things in his environment). We will be learning about echoicvocal imitation, tact-labels, intraverbals- answers to questions, mands-requests and listener behavior-following instructions.
This workshop is intended for Regular Education Teachers, Special Education Teachers, Parents, Administrators and other professionals working with students with autism.
