What is Verbal Behavior Training?

Verbal Behavior Training is a style of ABA that increases a child's language. It is commonly used with children with Autism.  It uses B. F. Skinner's 1957 analysis of Verbal Behavior to teach and reinforce speech, along with other skills. 
 
A VB program will focus on getting a child to realize that language will get him what he wants, when he wants it. Requesting is often one of the first verbal skills taught; children are taught to use language to communicate, rather than just to label items. Learning how to make requests also should improve behavior.

We currently have Behavior Analysts who are trained in VB-MAPP and ABLLS-R programs, who can bring 
VB training to your home.
