Description: This workshop will give a detailed overview of a three-step procedure created to teach staff to name the verbal operants fluently and to utilize errorless and error correction teaching procedures.

Learning Objectives: This workshop will achieve the following objectives: 1. Participants will fluently name the verbal operants. 2. Partipants will demonstrate fluent errorless and error correction and generalization run-throughs. 3. Participants will leave the workshop with the skills needed to teach the three-step procedure to others including staff members and parents.
Activities: The workshop will include a lecture, simulation activities, role playing, and discussion.
Audience: Behavior analysts, psychologists, teachers and others interested in learning the skills needed to implement ABA and VB intensive teaching sessions with students with autism.
