2/20/09 Apologies for loss of the google translator!

pbwiki is changing its format and editor, and as one of those changes it is redacting (inactivating) small javascripts that used to function on this site. One of those inactivated was the google translator. I'm looking for an acceptable alternative, but in the meantime, to translate the pages, start in google translator and type in the URL of this site.

2/11/09 Creation of page on AUTOCLITICS

Autoclitics are a relatively advanced topic in Verbal Behavior but have relevance to language instruction and as tact modifiers. This is repost of a very clear description of classifications by Dr. Jay C.Moore. Suggestions for further reading are included at the bottom of the page.

 

2/6/09 POSSIBLE CHANGES TO THIS WEBSITE

PBWiki is in the process of changing its sites to a different format and editor system effective March 9, 2009. It's not clear at the present time how, or whether, this will affect the functionality or format of this site. We apologize in advance for any glitches when the switchover occurs.

About discontinuing "Workshop news"

When the site started, I had hoped that I could keep up with ongoing workshops--esp. if announcements were forwarded for posting, but because of the time seeking this info, rather than having no announcements on the page or only out-of-date information, it is likely that active content will be discontinued and the pages and links deleted. It's not quite decided, but if those changes occur, that is the reason. Thanks for your understanding.

Site updates; contact us about bad links or new info

 

4/14/08 Page reorganization in progress

When I first started the site, there was not quite so much info and organization was not such an issue. As time has gone on, it has become more so, so I am gradually going through the site and consolidating and editing some pages, checking link status and trying to add features to make it more navigatible. Thanks for you patience while this is going on.

1/12/08 Sorry about Javascript errors.

Some functions on the site using Javascript, such as the Babelfish translator, have been disabling. The happens from time to time, so I am trying to find a solution to keep the function enabled and stable. Thanks for your understanding.

4/29/07 PATTAN Verbal Behavior video

Just a little apology for making alot of changes and additions to the pages...

things will settle down soon, but there is alot of new info that has been added.

 

I wanted to point out a really awesome video, esp. if it's going to be a while until

you can get to a workshop...

Look on the FAQs ABOUT VERBAL BEHAVIOR PAGE for the video from PATTAN on verbal behavior.

It's about 4 hours long, and might be a little heavy-duty starting out, but

it's a good grounding if you are someone who learns well from video.

 

This entire section has been expanded, so check it out if you have a chance. :-).

 

Have a great week.

4/27/07 EIBI comparison table of replication studies

I created a new page last night, on EIBI and ABA interventions for persons with autism.

There is a comparative table of the various replication studies.

EVIDENCE PAPERS FOR EIBI

also check out LEGALand the info there.

 

 

If you know of any further papers or evidence that has been useful in persuading either

insurance carriers or legislators, please CONTACT US.

It's important for everyone to be able to make the best case for the medical and societal supports of our children

and family members, and we would love to post the evidence here. THANKS!

 

Have a good day!

4/26/07 Intensive teaching results in dramatic improvements

Thursday, April 26, 2007

The Guardian

 

A two-year British study into the impact of early intensive behavioural intervention (EIBI) found that some toddlers on the programme jumped 40 IQ points. A quarter showed "very substantial improvements", and none regressed.

 

The youngsters also showed more advanced language and better daily living skills than similar children in a control group who received standard educational support such as speech therapy..."

Introduction to Verbal Behavior: Teaching Communication Skills to Children with Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities

February 13-15, 2008 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Presented by Dr. Vincent J. Carbone, Ed.D., Board Certified Behavior Analyst

Workshop sponsored by the Janus Academy

REGISTER NOW at http://www.janusacademy.com

 

Dr. Vincent J. Carbone is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst with over 30 years of experience designing learning environments for

persons with autism and development disabilities.

This workshop focuses on the behavioral approach to teaching

communication skills to children with autism and other developmental

disabilities. This approach is based on B.F. Skinner's analysis of

verbal behavior and the research of Drs. Jack Michael, Mark Sundberg, James Partington and others.

Participants in this workshop will learn to:

• conduct a Behavioral Language Assessment;

• select the most appropriate form of communication for a child

(vocalizing, signing, pointing to or exchanging pictures, or

activating an augmentative device);

• select the communication responses and supporting skills that

should be taught first.

The workshop includes the recommended teaching procedures for those

children who have no formal communication skills to those that are

near conversational speakers. Dr. Carbone also describes and

demonstrates errorless teaching, specific quick-transfer (prompting

and fading) procedures, and the use of both discrete trial training

in the natural environment and during intensive teaching sessions.

Many video tape demonstrations are provided to illustrate the methods

to increase spontaneous language and to develop conversational

skills.

Natural Environment Teaching is where the learners acquire new skills through play.

The important elements of NET are to keep in mind

  • what you want to teach
  • to identify what motivates the child

  • and to have FUN
  • When the target skills are functional and motivating, much can be accomplished in the natural environment
