Many children with emerging language skills do not think of things as having parts, attributes or fitting into categories but these are necessary for developing appropriate, functional conversation skills. Once a child can ask for, label and receptively identify a great many items, it’s a good time to start teaching the FFC’s or rather features, function and class of items, people and places. These lessons teach a child to talk about things rather than just labeling them.

Features may be: doors, wheels, tails, ears, etc.
Functions may be: cutting, driving, eating, sleeping, etc.
Classes may be: zoo animals, vehicles, foods, clothing, etc.

At we provide a wide range of early childhood applications using behavioral techniques that are based on the principals of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) using a Verbal Behavior (VB) technique. ABA has been scientifically proven to be effective in teaching academic, language and communication skills to typically developing children as well as those with special needs or developmental delays such as Speech or Language Delays, Dyslexia, Hearing Loss, ADD/ADHD, Auditory Processing Disorder, Autism, Dyspraxia, and PDD-NOS.
