Day Two: Designing, Implementing and Troubleshooting Verbal Behavior–ABA Programs
James W. Partington, PhD, BCBA Director of behavior Analysts, Inc.
{View Brochure}

This workshop is designed primarily to provide professionals who are familiar with the ABLLS–R with skills to analyze problems with the development of certain skill areas (e.g. spontaneous use of language and social interaction skills) and to provide them with strategies for addressing those problems. Discussions regarding the analysis of problems in the acquisition of skills, evaluation of educational priorities, and determination of IEP objectives for several students will be conducted.

During the workshop, participants will review data from students' ABLLS, review proposed learning objectives, and observe videotapes of learner skills. The video reviews will include both early phases of assessment and intervention and later phases of treatment interventions. Pre- and post-ABLLS scores of the learners' performance will be reviewed.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Identify at least two common problems that are related to the failure of students to make adequate progress in the development of critical learner skills.
  • Identify how motivational issues are related to the acquisition of language skills.
  • Describe how social reinforcement variables are related to the development of spontaneous verbal behavior.
  • Identify how to directly shape critical language and social interaction skills.
