AUDIENCE: This workshop is designed for teachers, therapists, behavior analysts and others whose role is to design and implement methods to increase the verbal behavior of children with autism and related disorders in home, school or center-based programs.
PREREQUISITES: Participants should have knowledge of B.F. Skinner’s Analysis of Verbal Behavior and make use of the Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (Sundberg, 2007) as an assessment and curriculum guide.
Description: This workshop will review Jack Michael’s behavioral analysis of the role of motivation and how it can be applied to reduce learner’s motivation to escape from instructional tasks and reduce problem behavior. Effective antecedent teaching modifications will be presented and discussed to increase learner cooperation and skill acquisition. Data collection procedures and material set up will be discussed. The workshop will provide video illustrations as well as opportunities for discussion and questions and answers. Following the workshop, participants will be allowed an option to sign up for a 30 minute 1:1 with a BCBAs to go over questions or concerns related to the training.
