|Description||This course has been developed by Dr Moya O'Brien, Director of ICEP Europe, with assistance from Dr Sean Carey, Principal Psychologist. Both Dr O'Brien and Dr Carey are experienced Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) practitioners. Applied Behaviour Analysis is a precise, systematic and measurable method for teaching children with developmental disabilities to learn. It is based on sound behavioural principles and evidence-based research and practice. Essentially an educational method, it has a wide range of applications, particularly within the field of developmental disabilities. These areas include teaching children with developmental disabilities, including autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorder, intervention with problem behaviours, and parenting. The course is designed to actively engage students in learning both the analytical skills and the practical techniques of ABA.|

|Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students||
In this course we cover all the key techniques of the ABA method, which include positive reinforcement, graduated prompting, repetition and teaching tasks in very small (discrete) steps. You will learn to apply ABA procedures in order to increase behaviours, teach behaviours and decrease challenging behaviours. You will gain an understanding of learning theory and the application of learning theory to youngsters with disabilities and you will learn how to motivate children with severe and profound disabilities to learn new skills. Through our interactive discussions we will share experiences and together solve some of the challenges that we meet in working with people with developmental disabilities.
