ABA is a therapeutic strategy used to teach positive behaviors to people in various settings. This approach focuses on providing individual treatment plans to increase desired actions in individuals while extinguishing unwanted behaviors over time. It involves keeping track of data in order to note patterns of behavior and respond to them accordingly. Moreover, it allows teachers to teach independent living skills.
Through ABA training I learned ways to work with children who have particular behavioral attributes in order to increase their chances of attaining their goals. With this ABA training and some guidance in hand I will be able to provide the kind of intervention that is helpful and productive. Lastly, the strategies I learned in this approach will guide me to teach children the concrete skills they need in order to perform many of life’s functions independently.

I truly enjoyed the Registered Behavior Technician Training Program I took part in at Rose Marie Academy. The program was conducted by Louis Malik, and his presentation was rich in methods and strategies on how to improve socially important behavior that have been clinically proven to be effective.
Some of the things that stood out for me were the observation of behaviors and systematic data collection, the methods and techniques applied to positively impact behaviors, and how I can use this knowledge as a tool to reinforce positive behavior in my work as a preschool teacher. I am certainly more confident in dealing with behaviors and observing children in my classes.
