What is Listener Responding by Feature Function Class (LRFFC)?
As we talk about in our blog post on VB-MAPP terminology, Listener Responding by Feature Function Class (LRFFC) is a really important skill for children to learn in their language development. It is a advanced type of listener responding behavior where a student is asked to identify an object by its associated characteristic. For example, a student may be asked to identify an object when given a part of it (feature), a purpose/action (function), or its category (class). Here are some feature function class examples:
- “Touch something you eat” (function)
- “Touch something that has ears” (feature)
- “Touch an animal” (class)

Finding Materials to Use for LRFFC
One of the hardest things about doing effective ABA therapy is finding the right materials to use with your students. That is why we created our set of language learning cards. Our First Nouns Picture Flash Cards are designed to be used with the First Nouns of Feature Function Class examples. There are pictures included to teach all of the features, functions, and classes on this free list. Best of all, we include ideas for which features/functions/classes to teach on the back of each card!
