This presentation will focus on how to use behavior analysis and the VB-MAPP to assess a child’s language, learning, and social skills, as well as potential barriers that may be impeding skill acquisition. Participants will then learn how to use the results of the assessment to determine an individual child’s immediate and long-term intervention priorities. For example, a child may be able to repeat words when they are spoken, but not independently use those words to name or ask for things. Or, a child may have a sizable list of vocabulary words, but rarely engage in conversations. The VB-MAPP can identify these problems, compare them to typical language acquisition patterns, and chart a path for a language, learning, and social skills intervention program.
