How ABA Therapy Works
ABA therapy uses teaching methods proven by science and studies to help your child behave and act independently. Whether your child is autistic, has behavioral issues, or a mental disability, ABA therapy can get evaluate where your child needs improvement and create an action plan to get him or her there.
ABA therapy uses two popular teaching methods. In both of these methods, the therapist will use positive reinforcements to reward your child with good behavior in hopes he or she will repeat that positive behavior. We will also analyze your child’s specific needs to create a plan specific to your child and his or her needs.
The sooner your child begins undergoing ABA therapy, the greater the outcome will be for their development. Early intervention is a crucial part to the process and has proven a positive impact. Click here to learn when your child should begin ABA therapy.
ABA Therapy Teaching Methods
Our behavioral specialists use two teaching methods for ABA therapy.
- Discrete Trial Instruction
- National Environment Teaching
Discrete Trial Instruction (DTI)
DTI teaching uses a structured environment to help your child learn and adapt to a structured setting—such as school, church, or appointments. During these teaching sessions, children work with a certified therapist to overcome small tasks to enhance and build targeted skills. These skills could include raising a hand in a classroom or forming questions through speech or sign language.
Natural Environment Teaching (NET)
NET is a method many ABA therapists use to help children learn using items which are motivating the child. For example, the therapist may use a favorite doll to help a child enhance their verbal and listening skills. NET allows children to learn and play in a comfortable environment.
ABA Teaching Methods
Both teaching methods provide a child with behavioral, social, or mental disabilities with a foundation for learning and achieving. These methods are tested and have been proven to help with the success of a child. For more information on ABA therapy teaching methods in Port Orange, FL, contact BASS today.
