Description: This workshop will provide an overview of the CARD, Inc. approach to teaching verbal behavior to children diagnosed with autism. The audience will see a humorous introduction highlighting donts in ABA treatments. The workshop is organized into two content areas: The first area targets techniques for building repertoires. Specifically, we will focus on language repertoires such as mands, tacts, intraverbals, echoics and receptives. The second area targets curriculum and programming issues. There, we will present a comprehensive, functional, cumulative and hierarchical language program excerpted from the CARD, Inc curriculum. We will present the curriculum content (the specific programs) as well as its structure (the underlying verbal functions targeted within each programs).
Learning Objectives: At the completion of the workshop, participants will be able to: Demonstrate basic language programming skills for echoics, mands, tacts, intraverbals, and receptive skills. Develop an understanding of the cumulative-hierarchical nature of programming. Understand the detail of the task analyses necessary to generate �spontaneous� language. Increase reinforcer effectiveness in the context of mand training. Increase reinforcer effectiveness in the context of prompt and fade prompts for various language functions.
Activities: The instructors will present the training objectives through lecture, guided observation, and guided practice.
Audience: Parents, therapists, consultants and students. Participants should have a basic understanding of behavior analytic terms.
