Topic — The Big Picture: Children CONNECTING to Life Experiences

How do we decide what behaviors or skills we need to teach? What do we do when a child is already exhibiting a behavior that may be inappropriate or inadequate?

Behaviorism is the examination of human and animal behavior using the principles of science: observation, reproduction, testing, objectivity, etc. Applied behavior analysis, then, is the application of this science of behavior to meet a certain end: to increase or decrease a particular behavior, to improve the quality of a behavior, to stop an old behavior, or teach a new.

Often, our goal isn’t only to teach a new behavior, but rather to replace a behavior that a child is already exhibiting, a behavior that is either inappropriate or inadequate in meeting the child’s needs. To do that, though, we need to analyze the current behavior to determine why the child is using that behavior. We do this through a functional behavior analysis.

This seminar-workshop aims to “connect” the participants’ knowledge and understanding of behavioral strategies to children and their life experiences.
