This session will provide intensive training and analogue guided practice in teaching skills for applied behavior analytic interventions incorporating an analysis of verbal behavior. It will review protocols established within the PaTTAN Autism Initiative ABA Supports. Focus will be on skills related to teaching students with autism and related developmental disorders. The three day training will involve participants demonstrating skills related to identifying the verbal operants and other ABA concepts, developing classroom schedules and card sort systems for teaching, demonstrating procedures for intensive teaching (discrete trial instruction) and basic mand training skills. The session will include a brief overview of the VB-MAPP assessment tool and deriving student programs based on the assessment outcomes. Establishing instructional control and reducing problem behavior will also be discussed. Participants will be required to demonstrate acquisition of conceptual skills through brief oral and written assessments, participate in active responding and competency check skill demonstration of various teaching protocols.
