Verbal Behavior

Verbal Behavior is the behavioral analysis of language. 

 

Our technique seeks to develop functional communication and other abilities that 

lead to enriching personal relationships, well-being, vocational productivity, and day-to-day self-determination. 

 

B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior and the supporting work is what we are based on. ESABA focuses on assessment and treatment of language based upon the function the word or action serves in the learner’s environment rather than its form. 

This includes, but is not limited to: sign language, gestures, PECS and more. By applying behavior analytic principles and procedures using verbal operants as a unit of measure, we are able to assess and treat language systematically and individually for each learner. (Skinner, B. F. (1957). Verbal Behavior. New York: Appleton-Century-Crofts.)

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy

“Applied behavior analysis is the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree, and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement in behavior.”
(Baer, Wolf & Risley, 1968; Sulzer-Azaroff & Mayer, 1991)

Prior to receiving services, individuals should have an evaluation by a physician or psychologist experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of autism using the current DSM criteria.

Discrete Trial Training

(DTT)

Discrete Trial Training (DTT) is a research based structured ABA technique that breaks down skills into small, “discrete” components. Systematically, the trainer teaches these skills one by one. Along the way, trainers use tangible reinforcements for desired behavior. This allows for a high number of specific training trials. The Verbal Behavior approach to DTT also requires the adherence to teaching procedures that assist in reducing the value of escape motivated behaviors that may arise from a higher rate of demands: pairing, variable ratio schedules of immediate reinforcement and so on.
