Eliciting Language in pre-verbal ASD-thumbnailToday it is truly my pleasure to bring you a giveaway from Maria Del Duca of Communication Station Blog entitled: “Eliciting Language In Pre-verbal Children with ASD: A Review of Behavioral and Naturalistic Therapy Techniques“.

This is a wonderful 64 page presentation which reviews the research supporting the current behavioral and naturalistic therapy techniques for pre-verbal children with ASD and explains how they are used to elicit verbal communication.  It’s great for any educator who needs a detailed and highly comprehensive introductory crash course on the multitude of therapy techniques used with nonverbal children ASD.

Intended audiences:

  • Graduate SLP students
  • Clinical Fellows
  • New SLP clinicians
  • Mid Career Switch Clinicians
  • Ancillary educational and health professionals
  • Parents of children with ASD interested in learning more regarding research based therapy techniques

Select techniques discussed in this presentation:

  • Applied Behavioral Analysis
  • Discrete Trial Training
  • Verbal Behavior Analysis
  • Rapid Motor Imitation Antecedent
  • Milieu Communication Training
  • Pivotal Response Training
  • Total Communication
  • Picture Exchange Communication System
    • And much much more

I remember when I was just starting out in the field and worked with non-verbal children with ASD, I spent inordinate amount of time looking for and reading much of the research articles listed in Maria’s presentation to learn more re: these approaches. Have I had this material it would have saved me a huge amount of time and effort. The way its written is logical, informative and clear. I like how the limitations are included with each technique’s review, which is a bonus since to read about each technique’s limitations one typically needs to locate even MORE articles, thereby spending even more time on this endeavor.

You can find this wonderful product in Maria’s online store  30% off for the next two days (October 7 and 8) by clicking HERE or you can enter my one day giveaway for a chance to win.
