    Extinction

    Extinction

    Extinction is a buzzword we hear frequently in the world of ABA; however, what does it truly mean? Many people may think extinction is the same thing as ignoring, which is a misuse and misunderstanding. Extinction really means to stop providing reinforcement where it once was. It does not mean ignoring or following through on demands in spite of what else may be going on with our learners.

    Here, we discuss different ways to extinguish behaviors and use examples like sleep and potty training. We also talk about how the concept of extinction has changed over the years, how to use extinction more appropriately in behavior management, using a trauma-informed approach when working with learners, and more.

    Behavior Contracts

    Behavior Contracts

    For learners who can understand delayed reinforcement, we often use behavior contracts. These tools can be a great way to help learners understand and integrate those unwritten rules we see in places like school and the workplace. Behavior contracts are also a form of agreement between practitioners and learners, or even parents and children.

    Here, we define behavior contracts and talk about when they’re typically put into place. We discuss the positives of behavior contracts, including how they encourage reflection and self-monitoring. We share some of the downsides of behavior contracts, like using “good” and “bad” terminology and using them in a threatening manner. We also discuss some best practices for using behavior contracts with our learners.

    Teaching Life Skills

    Teaching Life Skills

    Life skills are critical to a learner becoming independent. Here, we cover why teaching life skills is important and how we can do it effectively. Life skills include executive functioning skills, personal care, daily living skills, occupational skills, and so much more. The ability of an individual to enhance their life skills has a direct impact on their quality of life as they grow into adulthood.

    We discuss the importance of making sure learners can achieve life skills without the presence of a teacher or guide. Taking ourselves out of the equation is key. We also talk about working with adult learners, how to break skills down into smaller steps, and more.

    On Wednesday, April 17th, at 12pm EST, we’re hosting a CEU all about how to teach life skills to adult learners. For more information and to register, head to our website!

    Types of ABA Data Sheets

    Types of ABA Data Sheets

    As ABA practitioners, we use a lot of datasheets. It can be tough to know which ones to use in specific situations, and here, we break things down. Data is only as helpful as how we use it, and datasheets can be as basic as simply writing things down. Datasheets should reflect the environment they’re used in, for example, a classroom datasheet will look much different than one used in a one-on-one. It’s important to look at who the end user is to ensure the datasheets are the most useful.

    Teaching, play, and engagement always matter more than the data, and we don’t want data collection to take over to the point where it’s taking away from what’s important. Creating a system that maintains this balance is key. We discuss how to start with an end goal in mind when collecting data, the pros and cons of some of the traditional datasheets, and how to use them.
