Application of Applied Behavior Analysis in the School Setting, Laura Ferguson

ABA, applied behavior analysis, is the application of behavioral principles to everyday situations that will increase or decrease targeted behaviors. ABA has been used to help individuals acquire skills in many areas, such as language, play skills, and self-help skills. In addition, these principles can help to decrease maladaptive behaviors such as aggression, self-stimulatory behaviors and self-injury. In the classroom we hear these terms and often wonder if or how we can apply these principles in our classrooms. During this training we will take a look at the science of applied behavior analysis and how we can implement these practices in the classroom setting. 1.5 BACB approved CEUs.
