Helping Your Child/Student Develop the Language Skills Needed for Social Interaction - Getting to the Intraverbal
Autism and most other spectrum disorders are typified by lack of language skills development. Very often children/students with this diagnosis are able to learn to communicate, but many do not make the leap from receptive and even expressive labeling to social conversation. This workshop will address how to help students develop this skill, also known as development of intraverbal language, through systematic teaching that can be done in both home and school settings. Specifically the following will be addressed:
The importance of categorization and the part it plays in learning intraverbal skills
What prerequisite skills are needed before you can begin teaching intraverbals
How to use matching/sorting as a teaching technique
In order to get the most from this workshop, a working knowledge of B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior is helpful.
