FREE CEU: Teaching Verbal Behavior to Children with Developmental Disabilities
Presenter: Mirela Cengher, Ph.D., BCBA-D

Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior has paved the way for an effective and efficient function-based approach to teaching language to children with developmental disabilities. This talk will describe recent advances in verbal behavior research. Central themes will consist of optimal procedures to teach tacts and intraverbals, as well as optimal procedures to support the development of emergent responding across verbal operants. We will also discuss procedures to teach two languages to children from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. We expect that the audience will learn how to select, develop, and implement empirically-based procedures to teach verbal behavior to their clients.
