Assisting and Removing Your Assistance for Independence
A core tool used in teaching children skills is prompting (assisting) and prompt-fading (removing your assistance). Knowing how and when to implement this tool is essential for a child to move from dependence to independence. We will teach you how to use this tool accurately across skills and situations.
Basic Strategies to Deal with Challenging Behaviors
We will teach you how to focus on the significant aspects of a situation resulting in challenging behaviors. Sometimes, changing small aspects of the environment and giving children alternatives to their behavior, result in positive change. The best tool in your box is knowing which aspects of a situation are significant and in need of change.
Applying Learned Skills to Different Settings
When children need assistance to apply learned skills to other settings, such as the community, your support outside ABA Therapy is key. It is important to understand the difference in environments from the perspective of a child and the type of assistance needed for them to be successful. We will show you this difference.
