Parent Training Program
Family involvement is essential for any successful ABA intervention at YAM therapy services we are commitment to provide training on using behavioral procedures for all caregivers. Consultation time will be spent with parent to discuss ongoing maladaptive behaviors and conduct parent training. Our BCBAs work one – on one with families to ensure your child develop their learning goals in a natural environment.

Using a range of techniques to enhance positive behaviors and minimize negative behaviors. The chosen techniques will vary by individual, treatment setting, and targeted behaviors. Prominent ABA therapy examples include discrete trial training (DTT), modeling, the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), and reinforcement systems.

1. Discrete Trial Training

DTT involves using the ABC approach in a one-on-one, controlled environment. The therapist will provide a prompt, ask for the desired behavior, and reward the behavior with positive reinforcement. This process is then repeated until the desired behavior is displayed autonomously. Therapists can use DTT to help individuals with autism to develop social and behavioral skills.

2. Modeling

Modeling involves demonstrating the desired behavior in ABA therapy. The therapist may provide an in-person, a video, or an audio example of what the individual is expected to do. For example, the individual may be instructed to shake hands when meeting a new person or to say thank you when given an object. This technique is particularly effective for developing social and communication skills among children.

3. Picture Exchange Communication System

PECS uses pictures to teach communication and vocabulary skills, most commonly to children. The child gives the therapist a picture of a desired object; in exchange, the therapist provides the object portrayed in the picture. They continue to use this system to communicate new words, phrases, and modifiers.

4. Reinforcement Systems

ABA therapists use reinforcement systems to teach individuals about the consequences of certain behaviors. If individuals don’t engage in the appropriate behavior, they may be prompted to try again, or reinforcement may be withheld until the behavior is seen. If they do correctly perform the behavior, they may receive a reward or positive reinforcement in the form of a reward or praise. Children, for example, may receive tokens that can be exchanged for snacks, toys, and special privileges.

ABA Therapist Skills

ABA therapists develop several key skills and competencies to be successful. Examples include communication skills, critical thinking skills, and empathy.

Communication skills. ABA therapists must understand how to receive both verbal and nonverbal cues, such as body language. They must also be able to clearly and effectively communicate with students, teachers, parents, and colleagues.
Critical thinking skills. Critical thinking skills help ABA therapists to make informed decisions about treatment programs. For example, professionals who use ABA therapy must customize each session based on a learner’s skills, interests, and needs. ABA isn’t a one-size-fits-all methodology: Individualized programs are written to meet the needs of each client.
Empathy. Empathy is a critical skill that aspiring ABA therapists must develop. For ABA therapy to be successful, the person being treated needs to feel understood.
