Introduction to Verbal Behaviour – Teaching Communication Skills to Children
with Autism

Vincent J. Carbone, Ed.D., BCBA
{View Brochure}

An internationally recognized speaker and superb teacher, Dr. Carbone will describe the behavioural 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 Behaviour and the research of Michael, Sundberg, Partington and others. This workshop will include recommended teaching procedures for children who have no formal communication skills to those who are near conversational speakers. The presenter will also demonstrate 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 sessions. Video tape demonstrations will be provided to illustrate methods to increase spontaneous language and to develop conversational skills.

Date: October 19 - 21, 2006
