Ever wanted to learn how sign Applied Behavior Analysis terminology in American Sign Language? Here’s your chance!
When I first learned about ABA, the vocabulary was hard for me because it didn’t easily translate into ASL. This made it difficult on my interpreters too–they couldn’t understand everything that was being said without knowing all these new words first-hand themselves. But now, with this video dictionary, you can easily search and find exactly how to sign “reinforcement”, “verbal behavior”, “punishment” and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is this an ASL class?
- NO, this is not an ASL class. Videos are no more than 10 seconds long and focus on showing you what the sign for a particular term looks like. We DO have an ASL Glossary of common terms for clients elsewhere— click here!
Are the definitions for the terms signed in ASL?
- At this time, the definitions are only in written English. In the future, we hope to add signed definitions and examples of each term.
I sign _____ differently than you do! Does that mean you/I am wrong?
- Not necessarily! ASL is not a standardized language and there are quite a few regional variations! It’s completely possible that you sign something differently where you live. Many of the signs used in this video dictionary were also invented by Jacqueline Wunderlich, a Deaf Board Certified Behavior Analyst, because no current sign adequately conveyed the term with conceptual accuracy.
Is this a subscription?
- Nope! Once you purchase this product, you will have ongoing access to it, even as we continue to add new terms and videos!
