About AVB PRESS
Our company was started in June, 2008 in Concord, California, by Mark Sundberg, Ph.D., BCBA-D (www.marksundberg.com). AVB is an acronym for “Advancements in Verbal Behavior.” The primary focus of AVB Press is on publishing applications derived from the field of applied behavior analysis (ABA) and B. F. Skinner’s analysis of language as presented in his 1957 book Verbal Behavior (VB). Dr. Sundberg has been working with children and adults with autism and other special needs for over 38 years. His primary focus has been on developing language assessment and intervention tools that are effective for teaching children and adults to communicate.
Many elements of Dr. Sundberg’s work have been published in various journals and books over the years, demonstrating a continued growth and refinement of a behavioral language assessment program, and language intervention program. This work is on-going as continued research provides new developments, methods, and techniques for improving the lives of those with special needs.
