What is ABA? Natural Environment Training

The goal of any ABA therapist is to help improve the life of the child they work with and their family using the principles of behavior analysis. By using NET, these real life applications are addressed. Throughout this past month I have learned that as you get to know a child better, you are more equipped for NET because you know what generalized skills the child could really use and are able to use reinforcers that you understand are the child’s favorite to create these effective changes and improvements in their life. Such skills as answering the phone when it rings, asking for the child’s favorite movie when they want to watch it, and responding appropriately to a sibling make life for the child and the family a whole lot easier.
