as effective treatment for autism has become very popular as it
has proven to help children with autism. There are many
branches to ABA and many teaching methods can be developed into
lesson plans to focus on learning specific skills, no matter how
seemingly small. Consider the use of images when developing your teaching materials for your child or
students in your classroom.
What makes a
good ABA therapy program?
quality ABA program, behavior change procedures are specified
clearly. The instructions and prompts, reinforcers
("rewards"), materials, and so on that are used to
develop each skill are tailored to the individual learner. There
is a written program or set of instructions for teaching each
skill; the behavior analyst in charge of the programming trains
everyone who works with the learner to implement those programs
consistently. It is particularly important for parents to be
trained to implement the procedures outside of formal treatment
sessions, in a variety of settings (home, playground,
community); research has shown that otherwise, the learner's
skills are not likely to generalize." Read more about
it from this great
