Grazie per la fiducia!

The project is aimed at parents and/or teachers who have attended or are attending a Theoretical-Practical ABA course provided by Data Driven ABA.

The advanced training project for parents and teachers has been designed to provide participants with greater practical skills in Behavior Analysis (ABA), in order to achieve an effectiveness in the educational management of their children or students beyond that obtained following participation in the basic course.

Project participants will receive training on the principles governing behavior, direct assessment methods (e.g. criteria tests), the application of behavior modification protocols and data recording.

The work sessions will include theoretical lessons and practical online activities in the form of laboratories directed by the manager. The project includes the participation of a second behavior analyst as a supervisor, in co-presence with the responsible, for one meeting per month.

The project also provides for continuous learning support by the responsible via instant messaging software, 6 days out of 7 (during working hours).

Provide participants with the theoretical knowledge to understand human behavior.
Show the main behavioral assessment methods (e.g.: criteria tests).
Provide participants with behavior analysis tools to identify the most effective educational choices in relation to the behavior under discussion.
Sharing protocols for building new skills.
Guide the participants in performing measurement and data recording exercises.
