Teaching Receptive Language Skills to Learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Teaching Receptive Language Skills to Learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Laura Grow, Ph.D., BCBA-D

Receptive language involves responding to the spoken instructions of other people (e.g., following instructions, pointing out an item after hearing its name). Receptive language skills are a critical component of early intervention programs and are ubiquitous in school settings. Previous research shows that learners with autism spectrum disorders may have difficulty acquiring receptive language skills or may display faculty stimulus control (i.e., responding "correctly" for the wrong reasons). The purpose of this workshop is review the basic concepts involved in receptive language instruction and learn how to optimize receptive language learning. First, we will review the concepts of simple and conditional discriminations and the desired stimulus control of common receptive language programs. Second, we will discuss best practice guidelines for teaching receptive language skills based on the current body of literature. Third, attendees will learn how to arrange the antecedents of instruction to reduce or avoid faulty stimulus control during receptive language programs.

Dr. Laura Grow received her doctoral degree in Behavior Analysis from Western Michigan University under the supervision of Dr. James Carr. Dr. Grow is an assistant professor in the Educational and Counseling Psychology and Special Education at the University of British Columbia. Prior to the appointment at the University of British Columbia, Dr. Grow was an assistant professor at St. Cloud State University. Currently, she serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis and The Analysis of Verbal Behavior. Dr. Grows research interests include conditional discrimination training, early language acquisition, and emergent verbal behavior.

3 Credits - BCBA Type II CEU.
