Abstract

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 of Michael, Sundberg, Partington, and others. Participants in this workshop learn (1) to conduct a Behavioral Language Assessment, (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 responses and supporting skills that should be taught first. 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 in the natural environment and during intensive teaching session. Many video tape demonstrations are provided to illustrate the methods to increase spontaneous language and to develop conversation.

The Benefits of Using the “Essential For Living” Assessment and Curriculum for Teaching Verbal Behavior & Functional Skills to Persons with Moderate to Severe Disabilities Including Autism

The Carbone Clinic is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Workshop on March 8th 2019.

Location: Dalmahoy Hotel, Kirknewton, Edinburgh, EH27 8EB, Scotland

Abstract

Persons with autism and other developmental disabilities have benefited from treatment programs that emphasize the application of behavior analytic principles. Applied behavior analysis (ABA) research and reports within clinical practice have demonstrated the effectiveness of this form of treatment to address challenges in the areas of language, social skills, self-care, problem behavior, academics and others. Many of these programs are now informed by B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior (1957). The purpose of this workshop is to provide an extension of this approach to treatment of persons with moderate to severe disabilities. The Essential for Living, developed by Dr. Patrick McGreevy and colleagues, is an assessment and curriculum uniquely designed to address the learning difficulties of this group of persons. With its foundation in the analysis of verbal behavior these materials provide a functional curriculum that acts as an alternative to the VB-MAPP for children and adults with severe learning needs. An overview of this approach will be the focus of this workshop along with video illustrations of treatment methods in clinical settings across several essential domains, e.g. problem behavior reduction, self-care, mand, tact and listener training, etc.
