Speech and Language Development helps an individual with autism learn to relax their throat muscles and encourages the use of breath to improve the voice through the use of oral resonance and vocal exercises. The verbal Behavior step-by-step approach provides us with techniques to help children develop language and speaking skills. As well as teaching non-vocal children to use sign language or PECS.
As we focus on reducing the problem behavior of children or teenagers with autism and related disorders, we use the Verbal Behavior approach to teach and improve their vocabulary and speaking skills. Our main goal is to teach them to speak and use functional language to interact with minimal vocal effort.
