Verbal Behavior

Verbal Behavior Therapy is an ABA method of teaching communication. Verbal behavior focuses on teaching communication by showing that words have meaning. Verbal Behavior  connects words with a purpose so an individual can access their wants and needs and engage in social interactions more effectively.
