Verbal Behavior Training
The exchange of information, whether spoken, through sign, communication device or picture exchange, is the most important skill your child requires to access their world. If your child is not communicating or is communicating at a significantly lower level than peers of the same age, the conveyance of basic wants, needs and desires can appear inappropriate, unusual or seemingly absent. Fortunately, decades of Applied Behavior Analysis research suggests all persons regardless of physical, mental and/or cognitive disabilities are able to acquire new sets of imperative behaviors.
Cayer Behavioral Group will conduct an assessment based on The Verbal Behavior Milestone and Assessment Program (VB-MAPP). This assessment will provide data based on your child’s unprompted responses that will allow our staff to create a developmentally appropriate, socially significant protocol to teach your child suitable replacement behaviors. Programs are developed and implemented across school, home and all community-based environments to increase the rate of acquisition and generalization, and all phases are developed and monitored by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
