Reduction of Unsafe and Socially Inappropriate Behaviors

 Analysts assess the function of high-risk behaviors in order to reduce and replace them for socially appropriate responses.  Our providers work to reduce:

  • Aggression toward others

  • Self injurious behaviors

  •  Tantrums

  • Elopement

  •  Mouthing

  • Property destruction

  • Throwing objects 

  • Eating non-edibles

  • Verbal aggression

  • Verbal protest

  • Cursing

  • Off-task

  • Undressing in public

  • Climbing

  • Self-stimulatory behaviors (e.g., turning on/off light switch, hand flapping, body rocking, pacing, eye gazing)

Tolerance/Acceptance Skills

Tolerance skills are taught to increase flexibility when things don't go our way or the unexpected happens. For example someone may have a strong drive towards certain objects or activities, making accepting ''no'' much difficult. ABA providers work on desensitizing unpleasant events and teaching:

  • Accept ''denials'' (e.g.,  ''no'') with alternatives

  • Accept ''delays'' (e.g., ''wait'')

  • Accept '' transitions'', ''routine changes'' and ''corrections''

  • Stay on-task in increments of time

  • Follow directions on command (e.g., stop, sit up, come here, high five, clap hands, go to take shower)

Communication Training

 Expressive and receptive language differ from client to client based upon organic causes and environmental influences. Communication training is understood to include a variety of skills such as:

  • Requesting wants/needs

  • Listening

  • Visual performance

  •  Labeling/Naming

  • Vocal imitation.

  • Initiating and maintaining conversation

  •  Gestural language (e.g., sign language, point, touch)
