Verbal behavior instruction helps students develop effective communication skills. Communication is a fundamental aspect of human interaction, and strong verbal abilities enable individuals to express their thoughts, needs, and emotions clearly and appropriately. Teaching verbal behavior equips students with the tools to engage in meaningful conversations, express themselves, and understand others effectively.
Unfortunately, verbal behavior is not taught everywhere that it is needed in mainstream education. In this episode, Liz and Steve Maher discuss the importance of assessing and teaching verbal behavior.
