The Science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) has often been used to help reduce problem behavior in children diagnosed with developmental disabilities. However, Behavior Analysis has also provided some very practical and effective research-based teaching procedures which have been proven to increase student learning. This approach to teaching has often been called the “Verbal Behavior Approach to Applied Behavior Analysis.”
This workshop will break down the specific teaching principles and procedures which are used to best help students acquire new skills, while also limiting student errors, and maximizing opportunities for students to contact positive reinforcement. The teaching strategies which will be reviewed are all research based, and the audience will get an opportunity to learn about how to implement these strategies during a teaching session.
This workshop can serve as a very helpful training tool for any professional who directly supports students diagnosed with developmental disabilities in acquiring and mastering IEP goals through direct and individualized teaching.
