Developing Individual Discrete Trial Programs Based on VB-MAPP Assessment 

This two-day workshop is designed to help prepare participants to develop individual discrete trial programs based upon the results of the Verbal Behavior Milestones and Placement Program (VB-MAPP).  The VB-MAPP is based on B.F. Skinner’s (1957) analysis of verbal behavior, established developmental milestones, and research from the field of applied behavior analysis (ABA).  Hands-on activities will provide instruction on how to teach language and other related skills to students with autism and other developmental disabilities utilizing a discrete trail format.  It is strongly recommended that a VB-MAPP guide and protocol be brought to the workshop.

-Utilize VB-MAPP profile to select individualized, developmentally appropriate discrete trail targets

-Implement research-based teaching procedures

-Demonstrate errorless teaching procedures across the verbal operants

-Calculate an appropriate VR schedule for individual students

-Follow multi-step discrete trail programs to teach advanced concepts (adjectives and prepositions)

-Organize student program binders and teaching materials

-Employ a variety of efficient and effective data collection methods for discrete trial

-Implement appropriate behavior reduction procedure to manage off-task behavior
