HOW WE TEACH
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
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.
As the learner becomes more proficient in a targeted skill, 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 supports such as pictures, symbols, or written instructions, are used to provide clear guidance.
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.
In ABA, generalization occurs when learners can use what they've learned in therapy in different places, with different people, and across various circumstances--It's all about making sure what they learn becomes a part of their everyday life!
