Summary: "Jumpstarting Communication Skills in Children with Autism describes how an ABA approach can help children age 2-10 who have significant communication problems—difficulty making requests, perseverative speech, a lack of fluency in conversational exchanges, trouble reading others' signals, and more—learn to understand and use speech and language. Enriched by case studies, this straightforward and information-packed book examines using the Applied Verbal Behavior (AVB) method to tackle a wide variety of communication problems typical of children with autism... AVB strategies and the other methods profiled (PECS, sign language, video modeling, scripts, social stories, etc.) can greatly boost a child's understanding of verbal and nonverbal communication, and help him improve his expressive abilities. The authors provide helpful suggestions on how parents can support this process and teach and reinforce communication skills at home." - PUBLISHER WEBSITE
