Richard Stock


An Introduction to the Verbal Behavior Approach to Applied Behavior Analysis
Suzanne Jacobsen, Ed.D., BCBA & Richard Stock, M.Sc., BCBA
{View Brochure}

Dr. Jacobsen and Richard Stock will describe the behavioral approach to teaching communication skills to children with autism or 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. The 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. Videotape demonstrations will be provided to illustrate methods to increase spontaneous language and to develop conversational skills.
