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

Errorless Teaching

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

 

Prompts

Or cues, are provided to guide the learner toward the correct response.

Prompt Fading

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

Modeling

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.

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.

Generalization

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!
