Three types of receptive language training programs for early learners are presented in detail. The ABCs of receptive language are reviewed and appropriate teaching and generalization strategies are described. LRFFC is defined and strategies to use LRFFC to increase the complexity of receptive language/listener responding skills are discussed.
