In language training programs for children with autism and related disorders therapists and parents often require multi-word utterance consistent with the child’s chronological age. Therapists frequently rely on the psycholinguistic literature (Brown, 1973) and not the behavior analytic literature (Skinner, 1957) to guide the teaching of complex verbal behavior. Through guided activities and discussion the participants will analyze the role of autoclitic processes in the development and teaching of increased length of utterance and complex verbal behavior in children who do not acquire this repertoire typically. The prerequisite verbal repertoires necessary to acquire autoclitic behavior will be discussed along with opportunities to respond to video illustrations of this complex repertoire in language training programs with children with autism.
