AB 530 - Verbal Behavior Analysis


Prerequisite(s): AB 520  and AB 523 . Verbal behavior analysis is the joint application of findings from applied behavior analysis and verbal behavior research to establish communicative functions for individuals who lack them. This course examines Skinner’s theory of verbal behavior as well as the related conceptual and empirical literature. Special emphasis is given to applying verbal behavior analysis to children and adults with special needs. Topics covered include: 1) teaching elementary verbal functions such as echoics, mands, tacts, and intraverbals; 2) establishing fluent listener and speaker behavior; and 3) selecting and applying verbal behavior tactics to address individual communication deficits.
