How Much Training Are You or Your Tutors/Therapists Receiving?

NBC Admin - Saturday, August 07, 2010
An issue that I frequently encounter either through parent report, tutor report, or my own observation is a lack of training for parents and tutors. There are a few reasons why this is a big problem: leads to less effective intervention for the child, can hinder progress of the child, and it violates the BACB code of conduct (and the structure of the Autism Demonstration Project for military members). I will discuss each of these issues below as well as provide some reasons why I think a lack of training occurs, a description of what a lack of training looks like,  ways to address the issue. Read More

ABA Myth: ABA is Not Fun!

NBC Admin - Saturday, February 06, 2010

It is rote, boring, repetitive, etc. I once had a parent tell me prior to starting the intervention that her parents were nervous about doing ABA because they heard it was like bringing in a drill sergeant and she didn't want that for her son. I have often wondered why so many people think ABA is not fun, especially when I have read so many articles, seen so many sessions, and talked to so many behavior analysts about working off the child's motivation and having fun during sessions. For this blog I am going to explore some of the reasons why this myth exists, explain why the myth is false, and then provide some resources for making sessions fun.  Read More
