Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a scientific approach to understanding behaviour and learning. It involves the application of basic behavioural practices (e.g. positive reinforcement, prompting and repetition) to facilitate the development of positive behaviours and skills, language and social skills.
Our Special Story conducts our ABA therapy sessions in a nurturing and naturalistic way. You can expect a lot of learning through play, as well as some structure put in place to help increase your child's understanding and learning.
ABA therapy has shown to significantly improve a child’s ability to learn and reduce everyday problem behaviours for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and special needs of all ages.
ABA is a dynamic and flexible approach, which can be applied in one-on-one or group settings across various environments e.g. home, school, work and in the community.
How does ABA work?
Using of reinforcements to facilitate the acquisition of new skills
Breaking complex tasks into smaller and simpler steps to aid learning
Utilising Functional Analysis to understand the functions of behaviours to increase desirable behaviours and to decrease problem behaviours
Making objective, data-driven decisions to assess, plan and revise intervention programs and goals.
Utilising Communication Temptations to improve speech, language and communication
