Dr. Mark Sundberg "A Behavioral Approach to Language Assessment & Intervention for Children with Autism" @ Commons Learning Center | Austin | Texas | United States

This workshop will cover the basic elements of the applied behavior analysis/verbal behavior (ABA/VB) approach to language assessment and intervention for children with autism or other types of developmental disabilities. During the morning session, the focus will be on how to use a behavioral analysis of language to assess a child’s language and social skills, as well as his potential barriers to language acquisition, using the VB-MAPP assessment program. Participants will then learn how to use the results of the assessment to determine an individual child’s immediate intervention priorities. During the afternoon session, the focus will be developing an individualized intervention program. Several teaching procedures will be described (e.g., early mand skills, listener discriminations, intraverbal development). Additional topics discussed over the course of the workshop will include augmentative communication, vocabulary selection, data collection, behavior problems, and peer interaction.
