Verbal Behavior Programming

Successfully connecting words with their purposes.

Based on ABA principles and the work of behaviorist B.F. Skinner, Verbal Behavior (VB) therapy teaches how words can help children diagnosed with autism get desired objects or results.

Not simply using words as labels, but rather WHY we use words – making a more meaningful and useful connection. For example, with your therapist repeating the word and presenting a cookie, then using the word in context, the child learns that saying “cookie” can actually produce a cookie.

With time and patience, verbal skills improve to more complex words and meanings.
