Communication deficits are a hallmark characteristic of autism spectrum disorders. In this course, students will learn about the variability and complexity of difficulties in communication, including vocal and non-vocal communication. Alternatives to vocal communication will be discussed. Students will learn how such deficits can be assessed, prioritized, and addressed through effective goal setting and objective evaluation of progress. Students will be introduced to the verbal behavior classification system as a way  to conceptualize core communication skills.
