Discrete Trial Teaching intervention for ABA

As mentioned in the previous post – ABA, what is it and how does it work – the most common and distinguishing type of intervention based on applied behavior analysis is discrete trial teaching. It is what people most often think of when you say "ABA" or "Lovaas method." This is partly because there are so many hundreds of hours of DT teaching, and partly because it looks so odd. But it is what it is because that's what works, every aspect has been refined (and is still being refined) to result in maximum learning efficiency.

ABA, what is it and how does it work.

Applied Behavior Analysis. "Applied" means practice, rather than research or philosophy. "Behavior analysis" may be read as "learning theory," that is, understanding what leads to (or doesn't lead to) new skills. (This is a simplification: ABA is just as much about maintaining and using skills as about learning.) - Continue reading -

Learning from Autism

I was just recently having a conversation with a friend about our kids. We were talking about how we as parents influence our children’s behaviours, (with or without ASD). Whether we like it or not we play an enormous role in our children’s lives and we should strive to lead by example and earn respect rather than by commanding and expecting. Continue Reading -->

Temple Grandin movie an inspiration to the Autism community

We have just seen the movie Temple Grandin after having heard about it in the Adelaide Autism Yahoo Group, and I must admit we thoroughly enjoyed it, I would give it a 10 out of 10, but then again I would be bias. Continue reading ?

Advocacy in Secondary schools

Hi everyone, I'm new here. I have a son on the spectrum. Life has been like a blend of "what's eating Gilbert grape" and "the black balloon" for my family. Having been amazed at the various responses across the whole of society regarding my sons behaviour, I have decided to create a presentation to take into secondary schools across the Sydney region to build community awareness on a broader scale, and offer the opportunity for questions to be answered with the intention of a greater level of understanding in all aspects of future Sydney community life.
