Relational Frame Theory (RFT) views generalized derived relational responding – relational framing – as the core skill involved in human language. As such, RFT is essential for flexible, fluent conversational skills and academic progress. Our approach to early intervention integrates RFT theory and applied research with strategies developed by programs which follow a more traditional behavior analytic and specifically Skinnerian analysis of verbal behavior. In Volume 2 of this handbook series, we focus on assessing and establishing relational responding repertoires in patterns of distinction, comparison, opposite, spatial, and temporal framing. We emphasize how doing so can promote generalized and generative language repertoires, taking a developmental approach beginning with early non- arbitrary relational responding and proceeding step by step towards arbitrarily-applicable derived relational responding across these patterns. Throughout, we identify relational responding repertoires as behavioral cusps to teach towards an ultimate aim of establishing generative language, and present a powerful framework for approaching early intervention, based on RFT and informed by decades of research and practice.
