When designing and delivering an ABA programme for an individual, we consider two core components: Behaviour Management and Skills Acquisition.
Through Behaviour Management we seek to reduce behaviour which is detrimental or harmful to learning. This can include defiance, self-injurious behaviour, aggression, destruction of objects, outbursts, obsessive/compulsive behaviour and various stereotypic behaviour.
Through Skills Acquisition we seek to remove the relevance for detrimental behaviour by teaching the adaptive skills necessary to meet needs appropriately. Such skills include: functional communication, social competence, self-help, safety, leisure/recreation, and a range independent life-skills.
Once these skills and behaviours are identified, data is collected on the frequency or duration of each. This data becomes available for the ABA Consultant to analyse, review progress and tweak where necessary to ensure goals are being met.
We provide ABA programmes via two different delivery methods (see below for more details). Our clinical team are happy to discuss the most suitable service type for your child and your family.
