Verb-Noun Mands: Target Brainstorm
Its always tricky to think of a sufficient amount of targets to teach for specific goals in an ABA program. When given a general goal (i.e. teach your child at least 50 different verb-noun mands), parents are always looking for specific lists to use with their children.
I am going to share target lists for a variety of goals that are often targeted in a home ABA program for a child with autism over the next few weeks. The purpose of this is to share ideas and to use this list as a foundation to brainstorm even more ideas for your child. It should be noted that what you target should be individualized based on your child's motivation and what is functional for your child.
First up, verb-noun Mands. This goal is appropriate for children who are in Level 2 of the VB-MAPP and already have a large repertoire of single item and action mands mastered. Of note, for my teams, I require that the child can use the target verb with at least 3 different nouns.
