Teaching Functional Speech to Non-Verbal Individuals with Behavior Problems: Applying the Science of Behavior Analysis with Oral Placement Therapy Presented by: Renee Roy Hill, MS, CCC-SLP “A combined approach using the science of Applied Behavior Analysis and Oral Placement Therapy (OPT) in a systematic program to teach functional speech to non-verbal individuals with Autism and related disabilities”.
SUMMARY: Developing functional speech in non-verbal clients with children who exhibit behavioral challenges to include the diagnosis of autism can be one of the biggest challenges for speech pathologists when those clients do not respond to traditional verbal modeling approaches. Working with those clients who present with challenging behaviors can be difficult as well. This course presents a systematic approach to developing functional speech with individuals who are non-verbal or non-imitative. The course teaches a comprehensive program that combines principles of applied behavior analysis with oral placement therapy.
For speech and language pathologists, this course demonstrates techniques to maximize learning for functional speech using reinforcement based procedures. This course will guide all participants through a complete program beginning with developing cooperation and ending with functional vocabulary. Videos will be shown throughout the presentation to demonstrate each technique. This course benefits Speech and Language Pathologists, Teachers, Parents and others working with non-verbal individuals with behavioral challenges or autism.
