Applied Behavioural Analysis - ABA
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, is a scientific discipline recognized globally as one of the main therapeutic approaches to develop, maintain and generalize skills in children with autism.
ABA is a structured, evidence based practice that helps develop skills in improving communication, academics, self-care, social and basic living skills. It helps in maintaining and developing desirable behaviors while reducing undesirable behaviors.
Our Behavior Therapists provide ABA services based on the following methodologies:
Discrete Trial Training (DTT)
Discrete Trial Training (DTT) is a step-by-step structured program which is based on a one-to-one child-clinician ratio. It involves the breaking down of the whole task or the skill to be learnt into simpler steps and skills to teach the child. It is used in teaching a variety of skills from the very simple to more complex involving daily routines and structure.
Verbal Behavior (VB)
Verbal Behavior (VB) approach is used to facilitate language development using behavioural analysis. Communication skills are also learnt behaviours and by using tools such as VB-MAPP (Sundberg) and EFL (McGreevy) leads to identification of specific language objectives, and helps develop a personalized program for verbal behaviour development
Natural Environment Training (NET)
Natural Environment Training, or NET, utilizes reinforcement inventory from the child's natural environment to develop strategies that develop skills for the child in their naturalized setting. Natural Environment Training offered by our Behavior Analysts and Therapists focus on a child’s specific needs and embeds them within his/her interests.
Pivotal Response Training (PRT)
PRT's principles are more child led, this making it more engaging and fun for the child to learn and develop skills which can be easily generalized to different contexts. The activities are centered around what the child finds enjoyable in order to motivate the child to engage socially and interact with peers and other people in their environment
