The Basics of ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis)
and AVB (Applied Verbal Behavior)

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a specific application of behavior therapy that has been shown to be effective in treating children with autism spectrum disorders. Applied Verbal Behavior (AVB) is a specific application of ABA that is used to help children develop better language and communication skills.

Partners In Excellence uses both ABA and AVB as the principle guide for the therapeutic interventions that are used to treat the children served through our programs.

This workshop will help participants gain a better understanding of the basic concepts of ABA and AVB therapies, and how these concepts are transformed into specific therapy interventions to help teach new language and learning skills, and to manage children’s challenging behaviors.

Participants will learn how the ABC’s (Antecedents, Behavior, Consequences) function to determine and control behaviors, and will have an opportunity to identify and analyze basic functions of behavior and language. Participants will be given strategies to use to help teach a child new skills and to help generalize those skills in other environments.

Participants will also have the option, if they choose, to do a take-home exercise with their child to practice these skills and then receive follow-up feedback from the trainer, if desired.
