Cranbury, NJ Negative Reinforcement ABA
Sidekicks Support follows the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis in Cranbury, which is the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree. We pay attention to the functions of the behavior of each individual to fully understand the situation.
After the BCBA or Board-Certified Behavior Analyst comes to your Cranbury home and performs an assessment on your child, a plan is written for treatment and service provisions based on the child’s behavior related to the four functions of behavior. The plan can use practices such as discriminative stimulus (SD), establishing operations, and/or negative reinforcement to help your child. We at Sidekicks understand that every individual is different due to a multitude of factors such as the individual’s skills, the current level of functioning, abilities, and how their behavior relates to the four functions of behavior. All this is considered to develop a program for your child’s specific needs. The BCBA will see how the ABA therapist handles the sessions, record how the child reacts to different practices, how the child handles established operations, and help the parents with support or coaching.
