Phd vs updating knowledge

See is a developmentally based criterion referenced assessment tool, that was field tested with typically developing children and children with ASD.

Whenever I start out new clients in our practice, I always describe the assessments we will use to get a “picture” of where the learner is, if he is a beginner, intermediate, or advanced learner.

Our baseline is our starting point, and gives us our “map” of where we are going with our treatment program.

~ We love that it is easy to read, and not overwhelming to parents or providers new to the vocabulary and acronyms!! Mary also posts a blog with great information related to verbal behavior on her website above.

Also, Mark Sundberg has some wonderful information including downloads, on his site There is also a link to the AVB press site where you can purchase this valuable tool.

They both also provide a nice visual display of the data in color.

Please call the Chair, David Baynes, on 02392 831 461 for a chat or email [email protected] express interest in the vacancy and then perhaps coming along to our next meeting to learn more.

I recall how overwhelming it was to think that I had to assess all 25 repertoire areas, and really had no one to hold my hand in doing so.The VB MAPP assesses individual skills within each repertoire area, such as the echoic, mand, tact, intraverbal, etc.It also assesses the child’s barriers to learning, and has a nice echoic assessment written by Barbara Esch, Ph D., an SLP and BCBA.Overall, I feel that the VB MAPP is more comprehensive and easier to administer tool.It is just a much needed improvement on the technology.Mark Sundberg and published by AVB Press ( in 2008. It has many advantages that outweigh using the ABLLS.
