This session is part of our ABA Series

Assessing with the VB-MAPP is widely recognized as a tool teachers can use to determine specific skill sets across Skinner's verbal operants. This tool contains five components, with the Milestones Assessment being the most widely used piece. This workshop will walk participants through the use of the Milestones Assessment, the Early Echoic Skills Assessment (EEESA), as well as a review of the Barriers Assessment and Task Analysis/Skills Tracking Sheet.

We've Assessed with VB-MAPP, Now What?
Assessment is meant to drive instructional decisions as well as what we need to teach and/or what the student still needs to learn. After completing the VB-MAPP, how do you know what skills to address? This training will look at the 3 Levels to the Milestones Assessment and how to determine specific programming based on the assessment results. Organizational systems for materials and teaching space will be discussed.
The Use of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Programming in Your Classroom:Evidence-Based Teaching Strategies
As part of the ongoing ABA Series, this session will focus on specific teaching strategies across the verbal operants. Errorless teaching, as well as error correction procedures will be a core part to this workshop, along with how to develop mand programs and specific teaching procedures/prompt strategies for the teaching of the verbal operants. The use of variable reinforcement (VR) will be addressed. Finally, different ways to collect data will be shared.

Matierals: All participants should bring the VB-MAPP Protocol book and guide book and completed VB-MAPP
