强调言语行为（aba/vb）的应用行为分析是一种方法论，based on research,that is used to address functional skills,such as language/communication,self-help skills,play skills,social skills,and complying with instruction.Verbal behavior services consist of 2-4 hour sessions,3 to 5 times weekly.
Verbal Therapy Programs
如果你的孩子在沟通技巧上表现出困难，那么言语行为疗法可能是有益的。Verbal behavior therapy is a methodology used to address skill deficits based on the basic principles of Applied Behavior Analysis.Verbal behavior services typically consist of 2-4 hour sessions which are spent 1:1 with the child and therapist.There are several domains of Verbal Behavior that we work on,which we refer to as verbal operants.
These operants include:
Manding– this refers to your child's ability to request items or activities
Tacting– this includes your child's ability to label items they encounter in their everyday life
Echoics– this entails repeating sounds,words,or phrases in order to promote speech development
Intraverbals– this refers to the ability to answers questions,complete fill-in-the-blank statements or otherwise carry a conversation
Receptive Tasks– this skill refers to following instructions to perform a task
Verbal Behavior Milestones and Placement Program
Targeted skills are taught during discrete trial training (DTT) at the work table and in the playroom during natural environment teaching (NET) and manding (requesting) sessions.在DTT期间，the therapist and child work on targeted skills at the table.The length of time spent at the table depends on the learner,but usually ranges from 10-45 minutes during each hour.在这段时间里，治疗师正在使用积极的强化，prompting,and correction procedure to maximize your child's rate of progress.NET and manding sessions are conducted while your child is in our playroom.During NET,we collect data for all teaching trials which occur in a 10 minute sample,but teaching is ongoing throughout the session.All verbal operants are covered by placing demands related to the activity.For example,when playing with a kitchen set,学员可能会被要求接触（标记）不同的食物，imitate stirring a pot,find the 2 button on the microwave,and answer questions such as "What do you do with a fork?"
We collect data on all teaching trials in a 10 minute sample during manding sessions as well.The therapist engages your child in an activity,创造机会教授任务（项目/行动请求）。For example,if playing with trains,the therapist can teach the learner to request items such as trains,tracks,a bridge,and a tunnel,as well as actions such as pushing a train down the track,letting go of an item,and placing the track on the table.We use manding sessions to teach and help children generalize requests to other settings,as well as promoting eye contact while making requests.Because each child presents a unique skillset,programming will be individualized for each child's needs.Data will be collected daily on each skill taught as well as the number of skills mastered each week.Mastered targets are reviewed regularly to ensure maintenance of the skills.Our programming is based off of the Verbal Behavior Milestones and Placement Program (VB-MAPP) developmental curriculum.If your child needs our assistance in areas that fall outside of this programming,我们的分析师可以创建一个个性化的程序来满足他们的需求。
yabo电竞投注BCOTB can help with challenging behaviors that your child may exhibit.作为
problem behaviorsare observed,数据将被记录在行为发生之前发生的事情和之后发生的事情上。This process is done in order to better understand the reasons why your child may be engaging in these behaviors.We call this the function of the behavior.Once the function is determined,an intervention will be developed to reduce the problem behaviors and teach appropriate prosocial skills.For example,如果一个孩子为了得到饼干或进入游戏室而哀鸣，we may intervene by teaching him or her to request things appropriately.
Once the child has learned to do this,他或她只会收到一个曲奇或进入游戏室时，他们适当要求，而不是当他们抱怨。We always try to reduce the likelihood that problem behavior will occur by regularly praising children or otherwise reinforcing appropriate behavior.Other times we may offer them a promise reinforcer,例如，如果孩子从喜欢的活动（玩耍）过渡到不喜欢的活动（工作），他们将得到一个小玩具。The behavior plan will be individualized for your child's challenging behaviors.我们每天绘制问题行为的速率图以监控进度。
