Hamilton, NJ Negative Reinforcement ABA
Sidekicks Support follows the Applied Behavior Analysis or ABA principles, which is the process of applying interventions based on the principles of learning theory to help our Hamilton Township clients improve their social interactions and behavior. Our ABAs will pay close attention to how our client or your child reacts to established operations and the four functions of behavior to fully understand the unique needs that they may have.
When working with Sidekicks, a BCBA or Board-Certified Behavior Analyst will come to your Hamilton home and perform an assessment. Based on the assessment and your child’s behavior, a plan is written concerning the four functions of behavior. Our plans include many strategies and methods such as discriminative stimulus (SD), establishing operations, and negative reinforcement to help your child. We understand that each child is unique and has their own set of problems, with no two situations being the same. That is why we approach each child with a unique plan for them. There are many different factors to consider such as the current level of functioning, individual skills, and their behavior with relation to the four functions of behavior all play a part in how the ABA will help your child. Our BCBA will also offer parent coaching and support.
