Intraverbal is a form of verbal behaviour where the child responds to another person’s verbal behaviour, akin to two people having a conversation. It is considered the most complex behaviour to teach; however, it definitely is attainable. An example of an intraverbals can be “What are some things that you eat?” and the child replies “rice, carrots, fish” without any reference to visual cues such as picture cards or the actual food item in front of them. Hence, intraverbals are something that involves memory. A child that has successfully mastered this level should gradually be able to progress to holding a conversation.
