Assessment and training of functional conversation behaviour
*Subscription may be required
Measures for the assessment of initial, dyadic conversations are critically reviewed, and an alternative approach is described. The Verbal Interaction Analysis System is illustrated by two case studies featuring mildly to moderately intellectually disabled adults. These studies show how the VIAS provides an index of competence and assists in the development of specific treatment strategies. Social validity is examined in each case, and suggestions are made for improvements to the VIAS.
