10 hours, 41 minutes
11.5 BACB

“That’s what I’m after in terms of language assessment. Which one of these [verbal] repertoires are strong and under what environmental conditions are we able to evoke the response? Echoic, the presence of it? How about motivative variables?”

Mark L. Sundberg, Ph.D., BCBA-D on the purpose of behavioral assessment and contriving situations to determine strengths and weaknesses in verbal repertoires.


This course is a combined package of BEHP 1026 Applications of Verbal Behavior: Language Assessment; and BEHP 1027 Applications of Verbal Behavior: Language Intervention. This course goes through thorough detail on each component of the VB-MAPP Assessment. They include the Milestones, Barriers, and Transition assessments as well as the Skills Task Analysis, how to track them, and interpreting the Placement and IEP goals and recommendations section. Mark Sundberg provides applications of how to conduct it and researched examples of its implementation. In the second part, he explains how to use the VB-MAPP results to design an intervention program and the process steps to follow during implementation.
