Event description

Description

This workshop focuses on the behavioral approach to teaching communication skills to children with autism and other developmental disabilities. This approach is based on B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior and the research that has followed. Participants in this workshop learn (1) to analyze language using a behavioral approach, (2) to select the most appropriate form of communication for a child (vocal, signing, pointing to or exchanging pictures, or activating an augmentative device), and (3) to select the communication skills and supporting skills to be taught and the sequence and order of skill development. The workshop includes the recommended teaching procedures for those children who have no formal communication skills to those that are near conversational speakers. The presenter also describes and demonstrates errorless teaching, specific quick-transfer (prompting and fading) procedures, and the use of both discrete trial training and natural environment teaching. Methods to develop learner cooperation and reduce problem behavior during teaching sessions are discussed throughout the presentation. Many video demonstrations are provided to illustrate the methods to increase spontaneous language and to develop verbal skills and other important skills.
