Princeton, NJ Negative Reinforcement ABA
In Princeton, Sidekicks Support follows the principles of ABA or Applied Behavior Analysis. ABA is a process of applying interventions based on the principles of learning theory to help improve social interactions and behaviors to a meaningful degree. We will pay close attention to how your child relates to the functions of behavior to fully understand your child’s unique situation.
When working with Sidekicks, a BCBA or Board-Certified Behavior Analyst will come to your Princeton 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. Our ABA’s understand that each child’s situation is unique and no two situations are the same with many different factors such as the current level of functioning, individual skills, and their behavior with relation to the four functions of behavior. The BCBA will evaluate the ABA therapist who handles your child’s session and record how your child reacts to different practices. Depending on how your child handles established operations, our BCBA will provide parents with support and coaching.
