Family-Centred Applied Behaviour Analysis Verbal Behaviour Intervention for Young Taiwanese Children with Disabilities
Chu, Szu-Yin
International Journal of Early Years Education, v24 n1 p80-96 2016
Current educational policy promotes the use of evidence-based practices to maximize children's learning outcomes. With the goal of enhancing a child's ability to learn functional language, the purpose of this study was to focus on involving families through the utilization of evidence-based intervention based upon the Applied Behaviour Analysis Verbal Behaviour (ABA VB) Approach. A multiple-probe design was implemented to evaluate the effects of ABA VB training with regard to four verbal operants (i.e. echoic, mand, tact, and intraverbal) for three young children with disabilities. Three measurements of learning outcomes were also gathered to monitor the progress of targeted skills (e.g. receptive and expressive vocabulary). The results revealed that the three children exhibited immediate and significant gains upon implementation of the ABA VB intervention and that those gains were maintained after the cessation of intervention. Further evidence of the efficacy of this intervention was found in the parents' ratings of satisfaction regarding the ABA VB approach.
