APPLIED BEHAVIOUR ANALYSIS TRAINING
This one-week intensive training course is based upon 30 hours of training + practical and written tests. Training will take place from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm daily (with a one-hour lunch break), from Monday, August 1st through Friday, August 5th.
Applied behaviour analysis utilizes principles of learning to improve socially significant behaviour (behaviour that is important in the individual’s life). Thousands of studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of ABA across many different settings, populations and behaviours. Applied behaviour analysis is one of the only interventions with evidence of effectiveness in producing comprehensive and lasting improvements for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (gains in IQ, language & communication, social skills, self-help skills, academics, etc). Programs are individualized to each child and focus on systematically teaching small, measurable units of behaviour. Early intensive behavioural intervention (EIBI) is the intensive application of the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis to children with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities.
Training objectives: After successful completion of the training, participants will be able to:
• Describe Applied Behaviour Analysis, Autism Spectrum Disorders and Early intensive behavioural intervention
• Implement both structured and naturalistic teaching methodologies used in ABA programs (DTT, NET, shaping, chaining, prompting)
• Generalize skills using a variety of techniques
• Identify and describe the ABCs of learning
• Understand the functions of behaviour
• Identify some strategies for managing problem behaviour
• Help to promote appropriate behaviours
