[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]
Traditional discrete trial programs target many important repertoires for improvement such as verbal behavior, academics, and self-care. Social repertories are often targeted, and usually include greetings, simple conversations, and social initiations to engage in preferred activities (e.g., tickles, catch). Applied behavior analysis technology has improved beyond these basic social behaviors to include much more nuanced social repertoires such as joint attention, social referencing, responding to others’ interests, empathy, perspective-taking, sharing, and helping. This workshop will provide a behavioral conceptualization of these traditional developmental concepts and in turn, provide a framework that informs the establishment of research and instructional practices. This presentation will outline innovative instructional programs and research directives that move beyond basic social responses to more meaningful social responses, and will review published research in these areas. Videotaped examples illustrate research protocols and curriculum considerations.
- Define the social repertoires presented using traditional and behavior-analytic perspectives
- Describe behavioral analytic teaching protocols for the social repertoires reviewed
- Describe potential prerequisite skills for the social repertoires presented
- Describe the outcomes of past research in teaching the social repertoires presented.
