Abstract

The Human Learning, Interactive Multimedia and Informatized Teaching Laboratory (LAHMIEI), linked to the Psychology Department of the Universidade Federal de São Carlos (UFSCar), has been investing in the international insertion of its research group for some years, supported by FAPESP, CNPq, and Capes through different types of grants and scholarships. Recently, the LAHMIEI organized the visits of international professors who participated of research seminars. So, two research seminars happened during 2010. The I International Research Seminar had Tomas S. Higbee, from the Utah State University - Logan, as the guest, and the second had Edmund J. Fantino and Stephanie Stolarz-Fantino, both from the University of California - San Diego, funded by the Utah State University and by FAPESP, respectively. In the past, Richard Saunders, from The University of Kansas, hosted Silvia R. de Souza (1996, UEL), Silvia A. Fornazari (1998, UEL), Eliana A. C. Araújo (1998, post-doctoral FAPESP), Veronica Haydu (1998, UEL), Nassim C. Elias (2005, post-doctoral FAPESP), Ana Carolina Sella (2008, Universidade Federal da Grande Dourados). Edmund J. Fantino and Stephanie Stolarz-Fantino, from the University of California, San Diego, hosted Giovana Escobal (2009, doctorate FAPESP). In the present, Joseph J. Pear, from The University of Manitoba, hosts Marileide Antunes de Oliveira (doctorate CAPES, sandwich CNPq), and Anna I. Petursdottir, from The Texas Christian University, hosts Jonas Fernandes Gamba (doctorate CAPES, sandwich CNPq), both for an 12 month internship. Caio Miguel, from the California State University, Sacramento, hosted Daniela Mendonça Ribeiro (2009, doctorate CAPES, sandwich CNPq). The main products, derived from the international partnerships, are listed in the attachment 1. The present project has the purpose of requesting funds to continue the international insertion project, and the research collaboration with the presence of Caio Miguel in the III International Research Seminar. More specifically, Caio Miguel will participate in activities related to the "Verbal Behavior" research line. The grounds of the invitation to the professor are related to his recent researches on the topic, as well as the ongoing projects of LAHMIEI about the same topic. Caio Miguel will collaborate with a number of research projects, which are listed in the attached file "Description of Research Projects". These researches have been investigating the variables involved in language acquisition under a behavioral-analytic perspective. More specifically, the researches contrive ambient conditions in an attempt of facilitating the emergence of novel verbal abilities by children with and without developmental delay. These issues are of theoretical interest as they refer to the identification of the processes which are the foundation for verbal behavior acquisition. Moreover, they have pratical applicability once they make possible to develop procedures that may be incorporated into verbal behavior teaching programs in applied settings. The required funding will allow Caio Miguel's visit to participate in the following activities: (1) submission of the second article, written in collaboration, to an international journal; (2) data discussion and design of new projects to be conducted in collaboration; (3) advice for the projects related to the verbal behavior area, and conducted by the researchers of LAHMIEI; (4) lectures for graduate and undergraduate students of the Psychology and Special Education programs as well as other interested students; and (5) participation in the dissertation defense committee of Daniela Mendonça Ribeiro. Caio Miguel's visit will be spread through LAHMIEI and UFSCar' website.Keywords: Verbal behavior, Naming, Stimulus control, Matching-to-sample tasks, Autism, Intellectual disabilities (AU)
