ATS Tutorial: Introduction to Verbal Behavior Important terms to review:  Motivating Operations  Discriminitave Stimulus  Extinction  Errorless Teaching  Variable Ratio Schedules of Reinforcement The basic principles of behavior analysis are described in The Behavior of Organisms, by B.F. Skinner. These include reinforcement, punishment, stimulus control, extinction and motivation. In 1957, Skinner continued the principles to his discussion of language acquisition in Verbal Behavior. Skinner highlighted that words have different meanings based on context. We need to teach concepts of a word, not just teach the word itself. A child learns words best in his/her natural environment, rather than on cards. In order to truly know a word, a person must be able to use that word across all of its functions. Expressive versus Receptive Language  Expressive language- echoics, mands, tacts, intraverbals  Receptive language- Mand  Antecedent- MO, such as cookie  Behavior- Child says "cookie"  Consequence- Child is given a cookie Echoic  Antecedent- Teacher says "cookie"  Behavior- Child says "cookie"  Consequence- Child is praised Tact  Antecedent- Child sees, smells, touches, etc. cookie  Behavior- Child says "cookie"  Consequence- Teacher says "It is a cookie" Intraverbal  Antecedent- Someone says "What kind of cookie is that?"  Behavior- Child says "cookie"  Consequence- Attention, "wow, neat" Listener Response  Antecedent- Teacher says "touch the cookie"  Behavior- Child touches cookie  Consequence- Praise, "you touched the cookie" Match-To-Sample  Learner is presented with image, given the instruction "match", places image on another image that shares characteristics Imitation- individual mimics behavior of another in non-vocal response
