This article makes a brief presentation on autism spectrum disorder (ASD) as well as on general categories of studies related to language teaching to learners of special education in applied behavior analysis. The aim of this study was to conduct a review of articles published in the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis (JABA) between 2008 and 2012. The articles were selected from the PubMed database and the criteria for selection included the words verbal behavior and autism. Twenty-seven articles were selected and analyzed according to (a) year of publication, (b) affiliation of authors, (c) number of participants, (d) subject, (e) procedures and (f) type of article. The reviews were left out. The results showed that the mand teaching was the most studied theme and that stimulus control and positive reinforcement were the procedures employed with frequency. Moreover, it was observed that universities and service providers have published studies together, which shows that the development of teaching strategies has occurred in an integrated basis with professional work in the area and deals with practical issues related to the difficulties of this population.
