#HistoryThrowbackThursday




📌Today we're throwing it back to 1957 when the book 'Verbal Behavior' was published by the American psychologist Burrhus Frederic Skinner, commonly known as B.F. Skinner.

📌In the book, Skinner presents verbal behavior as a function of controlling consequences and stimuli.

📌It was this book that introduced the popular four-term contingency model in Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), which consists of a motivating operation (MO), discriminative stimulus (SD), response (R), and reinforcement(Srein) [Credit: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verbal_Behavior/].

📌If you are considering entering the field of special education, you are taking advantage of an opportunity not afforded to many people in previous generations. So let's learn from special education history and make progress into a brighter future for individuals with special needs.
