Publisher's Summary

How can applied behavior analysis improve social and learning skills?

It is a systematic manipulation of behavioral concepts to change behavior at any moment during a child's day.

Many ABA methods require teaching, which is driven in a highly structured manner by parents, while others use the innate desires of the learner to obey his or her initiations. In the sense of current operations, certain methods teach skills. Both abilities are broken down into small steps or parts, and many regular chances are given for learners to acquire and exercise skills in a variety of settings with ample positive reinforcement.

Cognitive behavioral training is used to teach children with ASD to control and regulate their own actions by modifying their attitudes, self-understanding, and values, based on the assumption that improvements are most likely to occur whenever a person becomes actively involved in their own behavior.

Neurofeedback includes tracking brain activity while a person engages with computer programs created specifically to facilitate focus or other skills. Sleep therapies educate parents and children in strategies for dealing with challenging sleep patterns typical in children with ASD and for developing schedules for sleep.

Throughout comparison to the ABA, ABA-based, and EIBI strategies mentioned previously, all such therapeutic techniques are used. In this audiobook, you'll learn:

  • What is autism and how it can be handled with applied behavioral analysis (ABA)
  • How behavioral analysis can be used with autism
  • How to link operant behaviors with ABA
  • How to analyze behavioral change and pay attention to even the slightest changes
  • How to use procedures basic reinforcement to increase a behavior

Psychologists have discovered a lot of things regarding human behavior, but not all of the expertise we have acquired can be used to change people's way of thinking and working in their daily lives. In this way, the area of applied behavior analysis is distinctive, having developed a rich and varied set of approaches based on established learning concepts that have been successfully implemented to change the actions of individuals. Behavior modification methods have been effective in nearly all fields of counseling and in a broad variety of settings.

Some branches of psychology strive to understand underlying cognitions but behavioral psychology is not concerned with mentalistic causes of behavior and instead focuses on the behavior itself.
