Applied Behavior Analysis utilizes many different strategies to teach individuals skills and promote positive behavior change. Explore some of the most common teaching components that we utilize at SCCD below

Errorless Teaching

The primary goal of errorless teaching is to maximize successful learning experiences by preventing incorrect responses and errors.



or cues are provided to guide the learner toward the correct response

Prompt Fading

As the learner becomes more proficient, prompts are gradually faded out to encourage more independent  and accurate responses


The therapist demonstrates the correct behavior, allowing the learner to observe and imitate the desired action.

Visual Aids

Visual supports such as pictures, symbols, or written instructions, are used to provide clear guidance.

Preventing Errors

By setting up the learning environment and tasks carefully, therapists create situations where errors are unlikely to occur. This approach aims to build a history of correct responses from the start.

The goal of errorless teaching is to build a strong foundation of correct responses and positive learning experiences. This approach can be particularly effective for individuals  who may be easily frustrated or deterred by making mistakes. It's important to tailor the errorless approach to an individual's needs and to gradually transition to more independent responding as their skills improve.
