A contemporary and practical application of behavioural principles and evidence based teaching techniques.
We’ll give you a brief insight in to the background of our organisation and set the context of the field of Applied Behaviour Analysis. We’ll also share the values that drive our approach and our commitment to focusing on ‘must have’ skills that lead to meaningful benefits that individuals themselves care about. To achieve this we take a highly individualised approach which we’ll share through discussion of our profiling tool that forms the basis for target setting and intervention design. A crucial component of successful and meaningful teaching is to understand the motivations of the learner and value and share in these and we’ll give examples of how we do this.
We’ll then get in to the nuts and bolts of the methods that help us teach learners new skills. This includes an overview of basic learning theory, exploring the essential components of prompting and reinforcement. It will include a practical guide to applying teaching technologies such as Natural Environment Teaching, shaping and task analysis and how to integrate these effective tools in a manner that never loses sight of the learner and their individual needs and desires.
