This reference book is a vital resource for teaching language to students with Autism, PDD, Down Syndrome or other language delays. The book contains hundreds of categories of language targets including nouns, verbs, adjectives, word associations, instructions, sentences, questions, categories, features, functions, and conversation topics.

Comprised of over 5,000 language targets, the book employs a variety of additional skill sets to track language goals. The book is organised into categories for quick reference and encompasses the unique concepts — words, word combinations, and mands (requests) — that are essential to early language intervention. The book is an essential resource for anyone administering the VB-MAPP or ABLLS-R assessments as it specifically supports the language targets in any Verbal Behaviour programme.

Diana Luckevich has produced an indispensable tool for teachers, professionals and parents alike. It is an accessible book that provides common, functional and relevant language goals that can be used across a broad spectrum of age and ability.
