The Verbal Behavior Approach.  How to Teach Chilren with Autism and Related Disorders

The Verbal Behaviour (VB) approach is a form of Applied Behaviuor Analysis (ABA), that is based on B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behaviour and works particularly well with children with minimal or no speech abilities. In this book, Mary Lynch Barbera draws on her own experiences as a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst and also as a parent of a child with autism to explain VB and how to use it. This step-by-step guide provides an abundance of information about how to help children develop better language and speaking skills, and also explains how to teach non-vocal children to use sign language. An entire chapter focuses on ways to reduce problem behavior, and there is also useful information on teaching toileting and other important self-help skills, that would benefit any child. This book will enable parents and professionals unfamiliar with the principles of ABA and VB to get started immediately using the Verbal Behaviour approach to teach children with autism and related disorders.
