ABA is just driming at the table
Parents and experts often think that the ABA consists only of intensive work behind the table. However, this is only one of the many faces of our work. Proper learning also takes place in the natural environment, and when playing and the ratio of these methods we determine according to the specific student and his goals.
ABA baby “heals”
At the moment, there is no method or cure to “cure” autism, and anyone who promises something like this is lying. However, research has shown that ABA can improve a child’s quality of life with a PAS and develop a child’s skills in many ways.
ABA is unnatural
A good behavioral analyst can set up a program to run in the most natural way possible. Part of the training takes place intensively outside the natural environment, because it is easier for the child to acquire the given skill in this way. However, the subsequent natural training is equally important for its integration into real life.
ABA uses punishment
One of the reasons the ABA often has a controversial reputation is the somewhat unfortunate choice of basic terminology, which also includes the word “punishment.” While in ordinary language punishment has a negative sound, in a purely behavioral sense it is any consequence of behavior that reduces the incidence of behavior. As punishment in the behavioral sense, shouting can work just as well as a chocolate table. With good behavioral analytical intervention, therapists work mainly with positive motivation.
ABA is only for children with PAS
ABA is the science of behavior and primarily has nothing to do with autism. Its principles can be applied to all organisms and are used both in children with special needs and, for example, in managers of large companies or animals. PAS is one of its many applications.
