Applied behavior analysis (ABA) has been effective in treating and educating persons with severe impairments as well as persons who require treatment to produce near typical repertoires. ABA methods have been successful in overcoming the learning challenges of persons across the autism spectrum. On the first day of this workshop methods to overcome the learning difficulties of persons with moderate to severe disabilities will be presented. The discussion will focus on implementation of the methods outlined in the Essential for Living, an assessment and curriculum developed by Dr. Patrick McGreevy. Emphasis will be placed on the teaching of verbal skills and the “Essential Eight” skills which are necessary to insure a productive and independent life of persons with severe impairments. On the second day of the workshop ABA methods that lead to advanced language skills necessary for socially appropriate and reciprocal conversational skills will be reviewed. Methods to teach advanced manding (requesting) and methods to avoid the teaching of rote intraverbal (conversational exchanges) will be presented. The presentation of treatment methods will be illustrated with numerous video demonstrations.
