Workshop 1: Teaching Early to Advanced Manding and Early Social Skills

One day workshop:

9th November 2020

Cost: £130 (Inclusive of VAT)

6.5 BCBA & BCABA CEUs provided for full attendance at this workshop.


Mand (requesting) training is an essential component of a program to teach language to persons with autism and other developmental disabilities. The mand repertoire is acquired in a development sequence from early (soon after birth) to advanced (4-6 years old) skills. Moreover, the development of the mand plays a crucial role in early development of social behavior. The purpose of this workshop is to outline the recommended sequence for teaching the mand and to provide video illustrations of methods to teach the skill at each development juncture. The role of the mand in the development of early social skills will be highlighted.

Workshop 2: The Essential For Living Assessment and Curriculum and Advanced Topics in the Analysis of Verbal Behaviour

Two day workshop:

10th – 11th November 2020

Cost: £260 (Inclusive of VAT)

13 BCBA & BCABA CEUs provided for full attendance at this workshop.

The Essential for Living Assessment and Curriculum: Teaching Functional Skills to Persons with Moderate to Severe Disabilities


Persons with autism and other developmental disabilities have benefited from treatment programs that emphasize the application of behavior analytic principles. Many of these programs are now informed by B.F. Skinner’s (1957) analysis of verbal behavior. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an extension of this approach to treatment of persons with moderate to severe disabilities. The Essential for Living (McGreevy, 2012) is an assessment and curriculum uniquely designed to address the learning difficulties of this group of persons. With its foundation in the analysis of verbal behavior these materials provide a functional curriculum for children and adults with severe learning needs. The full day workshop will include video illustrations of treatment methods in educational settings across several essential domains, e.g., self-care, verbal behavior training within the routine of daily events, and reducing problem behavior by teaching tolerating and waiting skills, along with others.

Advanced Topics in the Analysis of Verbal Behaviour


B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior has inspired important research and clinical applications for teaching language to persons with autism. The purpose of this presentation is to describe some current topics in the behavior analytic approach to teaching verbal behavior and how this information can be used to improve the instruction of persons with autism. Two important topics will be addressed including joint stimulus control and multiple causation and Skinner’s analysis of the autoclitic and its application to teaching complex language to persons with autism. Within the discussion of each topic a review of the current research and conceptual analysis will precede an overview of clinical application. In addition, numerous videos will be used to illustrate instructional methods to teach important language skills to persons with autism.
