Applied Behaviour Analysis: Think like a Scientist and Change Challenging Behaviours
At any age, children can struggle with frustrations and expectations. When that happens, challenging behaviours like angry outbursts, aggression, tantrums, refusal, and prolonged periods of crying can occur. Sure, life is full of challenges, and learning to work through them is an important skill. But when these challenges are big and frequent—without the improvements you would expect with learning and maturity—they can create a distressing cycle that is hard to break. Children with ADD or ADHD, and developmental disabilities like Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), can experience lots of frustrations when skills are lagging behind their peers. Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) can help reduce challenging behaviours and help your child develop effective skills too.
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is now offered at Possibilities. Here are some common questions we are asked about our ABA Service, along with our answers.
