Now you can accurately evaluate the learning, language, and social skills of autistic children with the VB-MAPP. This developmental milestone map is based on Skinner's analysis of verbal behavior, developmental milestones, and research from the field of behavior analysis. The five components of the VB-MAPP include:
- Milestones Assessment with over 170 measurable milestones that cover 16 skill areas and three developmental levels, 0-18 months, 18-30 months and 30-48 months.
- Barriers Assessment that assess 24 potential learning and language barriers.
- Transition Assessment that assess the child's readiness to move to the next educational setting.
- Task Analysis and Skills Tracking that provides a more thorough verbal behavior curriculum guide.
- Placement and IEP Goals.
Note: these goals are based on the VB-MAPP, but are not included in the MAPP. You must have a copy of the VB-MAPP guide.
Therapists, teachers or parents can quickly use the MAPP to not only assess a child, but also create curriculum and track skill development. Best of all you can continue to refer to the MAPP to keep your program moving forward. Use it to identify learning issues or to create measurable IEP goals. Now you can link educational/IEP goals to interventions in a clear developmental, data based manner. Note: you will need one MAPP per child.
