A Behavioural Education Initiative
We provide consultations with and training for educators and staff who wish to apply the principles of ABA in the classroom.
The primary purpose of this program is to broaden the use of behavioural education in schools in order to provide more individualized forms of teaching and learning for learners with diverse abilities. When we look into behaviour as a measurable dimension of how the child may or may not respond to instruction given his or her learner profile, we may end up with a more effective form of education suitable for that particular child.
Working with teachers and other school staff, the aim of behaviour analytic consultations to schools is to use the principles of ABA as an effective technology to increase socially significant behaviours and ensure that the academic and behavioural needs of the learners are being met.
The impetus of the Behavioural Analytic approaches to Education and consultation to schools that we mainly provide concentrates on teacher training, through hands-on Behavioural Skills Training (BST). BST is a form of training that makes use of instructions, modelling, rehearsal and immediate feedback to teach a new skill. This is to ensure that teachers have the tools and devices, and foremost, the skills to implement instruction using the principles of ABA in the classroom, on a daily basis.
