Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
During an ABA lesson, the following is utilized:
- ERRORLESS TEACHING
- REINFORCEMENT PRINCIPLES
- SETTING THE LEARNER UP FOR SUCCESS
- HAVING FUN AND ENSURING THAT LEARNING IS A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE
In order to ensure that students move from gathering skills with prompts to independent skill demonstration, it is necessary to systematically reduce prompts and reinforcers quickly, as the child skill level dictates. This movement from “ritual to repertoire” makes learning fun and eliminates the “robotic” stereotype behaviors that people often associate with ABA.
Susan Varsames, M.A. Ed., Director of the Holistic Learning Center and the educational staff function as the primary educators providing ABA services at the center. Some professional special educators are working for the center, and provide homebound services as well as services in the center. To learn more about Susan and the other staff, click on their bios. All our educators have been utilizing the principles of ABA for many years in the classroom and in the home setting with both toddler and elementary school aged children with specialized learning needs.
