A recent review of empirical applications of Skinner’s Verbal Behavior (1957) to interventions for children with autism showed that the number of studies published each year has increased over time (DeSouza, Akers, & Fisher, 2017). Additionally, research on applications of Skinner’s Analysis of Verbal Behavior spans a variety of peer-reviewed outlets. Recent research has continued to examine methods to directly teach a variety of verbal operants including mands, tacts, intraverbals, and echoics as well as methods to produce emergent responding across non-targeted operants. While the increase in publications is exciting and beneficial in advancing evidence-based interventions, it may be challenging practitioners to keep up with the literature. The current presentation will provide an overview of several recent studies on teaching verbal behavior to children with autism. Credits: Act 48, SW, Psych, PT, OT, BACB, INFANT, ASHA
