The Role of the Motivation in Teaching Children with Autism
Michael (1993) refined the concept of the establishing operation (Keller & Schoenfeld, 1950) to include the conditioned surrogate, reflexive and transitive establishing operations (EO). The publication of Michael’s paper along with the terminological refinement to the motivating operation (MO) 10 years later has led to a substantial increase in publications on the topic related to the treatment of persons with autism. The research over the past 20 years has demonstrated the important role of the conditioned MOs when teaching verbal behavior and other skills to children with autism in applied settings. The purpose of this workshop is to selectively review the literature on this topic and discuss clinical applications of the reflexive and transitive conditioned motivating operations in applied settings with children with autism. Video demonstrations of clinical applications will be presented in support of the discussion.

The Role of Joint Control in Teaching Complex Listener Responding to Children with Autism and Other Disabilities
Skinner’s (!957) analysis of language has much to offer clinicians interested in teaching verbal behavior to persons with autism. Much of the research in this area has emphasized the teaching of speaker behavior with less work dedicated to a thorough analysis of the contingencies operating on the behavior of the listener. Possibly due to this lack of attention cognitive explanations of comprehension, understanding and recognition have persisted. A special form of multiple control called joint stimulus control may provide an alternative and cogent behavioral analysis of complex listener behavior. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an overview of the conceptual analysis of joint control and the basic and applied research that has followed. Video demonstrations of the teaching of joint control with participants from a recently published study and clinical applications will be presented to illustrate the implementation of joint control procedures in applied settings.
24 Ottobre 2015 – lezione pomeridiana
Selecting and Implementing Alternative Methods of Communication: Topography and Selection Based Methods
A subset of children with autism fail to produce a high frequency and variety of speech sounds and therefore vocal responding does not easily become their primary form of communication. Procedures derived from the field of behavior analysis are appearing more often in the scientific literature and are offering increased options for practitioner’s who work with children with autism. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an overview of alternative communication methods and with this subset of individuals the behavior analytic methods that have been shown to increase vocal production in some children. Experimental data and published reports, including those by the Carbone Clinic appearing in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis and other journals, will be offered in support of the methods discussed. Video demonstrations and case studies will be presented as illustrations of implementation in clinical settings.

A Behavioral Analysis of Linguistic Structure: Autoclitic Processes and Increasing Length of Utterance
Sophisticated speakers produce utterances of many morphemes, in the proper order with appropriate grammatical inflections. Behavior analytic and other training programs for children with developmental disabilities and autism often attempt to teach these skills. These programs however have typically relied on developmental, cognitive and linguistic models of language development to guide when and how to teach these skills. The purpose of this workshop is to present B.F. Skinner’s natural science approach to analyzing the development of grammar and morphosyntactic structure. A behavior analytic guide for when and how to teach these skills to children who don’t acquire them typically will be offered through discussion, presentation of data and video illustration.
