Group Description

The focus of this list is teaching verbal behavior (VB) within a program of applied behavior analysis (ABA). B.F. Skinner's 1957 analysis of verbal behavior looked at the functions of language over its forms, and described numerous verbal operants, or units of language.

ABA/VB in this context addresses difficulties in the development of communication seen in most individuals with autism and other related disabilities, in part by emphasizing functional language and tying it to motivational variables.

Members of this list post and answer questions pertaining to ABA and specifically to teaching VB. Moderator Christina Burk, a behavior analyst, checks all responses before approval to ensure a high quality of information. Welcome!
