What is ABA?

Here at ABAble we provide 1:1 therapy to children with autism in their nurseries, schools and homes. The therapy is called Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and it involves lots of play, excitement and using human psychology to teach new skills.

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) breaks down large tasks into small manageable goals and then pieces them together to complete a larger task. You would be required to find fun ways to motivate the child/children you work with. You would be provided with the tasks and notes on how to teach each target. Targets are aimed at development, academics, commination and social skills. Full training is provided in both theory and practical forms. Tutors work independently but also as part of a team. Every 1-3 months each family has a team meeting (a workshop) with other members of the ABA team members. All targets are evidence with data and this enables us to analysis progress.

What is an ABA tutor?

An ABA tutors is the individual who teaches the ABA targets. They follow the guidelines provided by a qualified ABA consultant. They teach the targets by implementing the specific ABA theory and also gaining a relationship with the child they work with to motivate and reinforce the work they are doing.
