The course also explains different types of behaviour and how to observe these using the ABCs of ABA - antecedent, behaviour, and consequence.
The Applied Behaviour Analysis Diploma Course will provide you first with the essential principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis, before expanding on these further as you progress through the course materials. You will gain a greater understanding of the definition of ‘behaviour’ within behavioural psychology and the differences between classical and operant conditioning.
You will learn about different types of stimuli and antecedents that elicit behaviours and what Antecedent-based intervention (ABI) is and how it can be used to alter these behaviours. The course will guide you through creating an ABI plan and how to evaluate the success of its implementation.
The Applied Behaviour Analysis Diploma Course explains operant reinforcement and how it relates to developing new behaviours. The course also analyses positive and negative reinforcement, giving a full understanding within the context of ABA. You will learn how reinforcers should be used and the ways in which they can be scheduled, along with how to evaluate their effectiveness.
Shaping and Chaining are covered in this course. You learn why these techniques work and how to use them to provide successive steps in making a non-existent behaviour habitual, through planned task analysis. You will also discover discrete trial training (DTT) an effective one-to-one teaching method that is particularly powerful in teaching new skills, as well as reinforcing strengths the learner already has in supporting or prerequisite skills.
You will discover how to implement the practice of differential reinforcement (DR) to reinforce an adaptive (or positive) target behaviour/skill whilst ignoring maladaptive behaviour. Also explained in the Applied Behaviour Analysis Diploma Course, is the strategy known as Extinction, which is designed to eliminate (or drastically reduce) an interfering behaviour.
Used to teach a replacement for an interfering behaviour that stems from frustrated efforts to communicate a need or want, functional communication training (FCT) and how to implement it is covered in the Applied Behaviour Analysis Diploma Course.
The functional behavioural assessment (FBA) is the primary method when using Applied Behaviour Analysis to determine the function of a child’s behaviour. The Applied Behaviour Analysis Diploma Course explores this topic extensively before providing a step-by-step guide to using the technique.
Along with learning the techniques involved, you will also be provided with information on how to become an Applied Behaviour Analysis Tutor and the next steps to take upon completion of this course.
