Course Description

For some children and adults with autism, learning to follow instructions can be challenging.This webinar will discuss techniques from the ABA research, focusing on how vocal/sub-vocal responding is involved in developing receptive skills. From understanding simple to complex pieces of information, we will discuss techniques to assist in developing this vital skill.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  • describe the process of following a receptive instruction.
  • understand the importance of sub-vocal/vocal behavior in receptive language.
  • describe intervention techniques to develop receptive language.
