Abstract: Although the Skinner verbal behavior model was published several years ago, its implementation among children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) is rare in Europe. A systematic literature review analysed 37 studies published from 2010 to 2019 which included outcomes of 84 ASDs students aged 7 to 18 years. This study documents the characteristics of the publications, of the interventions in link with this model. Four main findings emerged from the results. 1. The lack of implementation of this model in Europe. 2. An improvement in ASDs students' language skills on each verbal operant taught. 3. The possibility to implement this method in a classroom. 4. The great heterogeneity in data reporting between studies. Recommendations for future research are suggested.
