Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy Session (series)

Applied Behaviour Analysis: Interventions for Development


SKU: ABA01. Category: .

Program Description

Applied Behaviour Analysis is based on sound behavioural principles and evidence-based research and practice. Essentially an educational method, it has a wide range of applications, particularly within the field of developmental disabilities. These areas include teaching children with developmental disabilities, including autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorder, intervention with problem behaviours, and parenting. The program is designed to actively engage students in learning both the analytical skills and the practical techniques of ABA.

Our online programs take the distance out of distance learning. You study when it suits you. You join an online community. You fit the program into your work and home commitments. We offer lots of support, advice and expert help.

In this program we cover all the key techniques of the ABA method, which include positive reinforcement, graduated prompting, repetition and teaching tasks in very small (discrete) steps. You will learn to apply ABA procedures in order to increase behaviours, teach behaviours and decrease challenging behaviours. You will gain an understanding of learning theory and the application of learning theory to youngsters with disabilities. You will learn how to motivate children with severe and profound disabilities to learn new skills.

Throughout the course we will share experiences and together solve some of the challenges that we meet in working with people with developmental disabilities.
