How does ABA work?

  • Skills are broken down into multiple components
  • Each skill is taught through repetition and reinforcement
  • Errorless teaching procedures are used to promote learning
  • Most effective, least restrictive prompts are used to promote learning
  • Differential reinforcement is used to promote skill development
  • All decisions are data driven
  • Literature-based teaching methods are adapted to meet the individual students’ needs
