Abstract

Persons with autism and other developmental disabilities have benefited from treatment programs that emphasize the application of behavior analytic principles. Many of these programs are now informed by B.F. Skinner’s, (1957) analysis of verbal behavior.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide an extension of this approach to the treatment of persons with moderate to severe disabilities.

The Essential for Living (McGreevy, 2014) is an assessment and curriculum uniquely designed to address the learning difficulties of this group of persons.

With its foundation in applied behavior analysis and the analysis of verbal behavior these materials provide a functional curriculum for children and adults with severe learning needs.

A comprehensive overview of this assessment and curriculum will be presented along with video illustrations of treatment methods in educational and clinical settings across several essential domains, e.g., self-care, verbal behavior, reducing problem behavior, etc..
