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 treatment of persons with moderate to severe disabilities. Several curricula will be discussed including The Essential for Living. The Essential for Living is an assessment and curriculum uniquely designed to address the learning difficulties of this group of persons. With its foundation in the analysis of verbal behavior, these materials provide a functional curriculum for children and adults with severe learning needs. An overview of this approach along with video illustrations of treatment methods in educational settings across several essential domains, e.g., self-care, verbal behavior training within the routine of daily events, and reducing problem behavior by teaching tolerating and waiting skills, along with others.
