Title in English: The Verbal Behavior Approach. How to Teach Children with Autism and Related Disabilities
The book introduces the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and verbal behavior to both professionals as well as parents. The approach is based on B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior and works particularly well with children with minimal or no speech abilities. In this book, Dr. Mary Lynch Barbera draws on her own experiences as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, and also as a parent of a child with autism, to explain VB and how to use it. This step-by-step guide provides an abundance of information about how to help children develop better language and speaking skills, and also explains how to teach non-vocal children to use sign language. It focuses on ways to reduce problem behavior, and there is also useful information on teaching toileting and other important self-help skills, that would benefit any child.
