HK Autism Behavioral Learning Enrichment Centre

We are a group of passionate and experienced Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapists with a unifying goal to enrich the lives of children with special needs (such as children with autism (ASD), Aspergers, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD), Dyslexia etc.) and their families using the research and evidenced-based ABA therapy.

means changing socially important behavior

means observing what someone is doing

means looking at data and make decisions about child's learning progress 

What is ABA therapy?

‘ABA’ stands for ‘Applied Behavior Analysis,’ it's scientifically proven to be the most effective intervention for Autism. With over 50 years of research, vast evidence exists to show the positive clinical effects of ABA therapy in intellectual functioning, language development, acquisition of daily living skills and social skills in children with autism (ASD) (Virués-Ortega, 2010).

 

Use of ABA therapy has extended to individuals with ADHD, oppositional defiant disorders (ODD), developmental delay, emotional disorders etc. (Cooper, Heron, & Heyward, 2007)

 
 

How does ABA therapy work?

Behavior analysis helps us to understand the function of the behavior(s),  identify the environmental factors that is affecting the behavior to encourage learning. ABA therapy involves teaching and rewarding any desirable behaviors in children. Complex skills are broken down into smaller and teachable units, such as brushing teeth, speaking in full sentences for communication, or even playing turn-taking games with a group of friends.

This all happens while at the same time, we do not reward children’s problem behaviors, such as non-compliance, tantrums, and aggressive behaviours. The main strategy of ABA therapy is to find what motivates each child so that these enjoyable items and activities can be used to encourage children to learn new skills and to ultimately adapt the learned skill into daily life and become more independent!

 

What can I expect from ABLE's ABA Program?

"Autism" is short for 'Autism Spectrum Disorder". Spectrum means that although two children have the same diagnosis, their characteristics and abilities can be entirely different. Therefore there's no such thing as a 'One-size-fits-all program'. Notable improvement can appear only after training on the specified areas determined by outcomes of individual assessment.

 

Goals can include many different skill areas:

>self-management,

>social skills,

>language skills for functional

  communication,

>classroom routines,

>play skills and the list can be endless!

 An initial assessment will help to identify your child's strengths and areas of improvement. Then, we will devise an Individualised Education Plan (IEP)  to set personalised goals for your child to work towards so that an all-rounded meaningful change can be achieved.

We will use:

Discrete Trial Teaching (DTT)

This is a method of teaching that is normally used to teach new skills. It's characteristics are very structured and fast paced.

 

A discrete trial (ABC) consists of :
Antecedent : Events before a behavior

Behavior: What an individual does

Consequence: Events after the behavior.

Natural Environment Teaching (NET) strategy complements DTT training. It ensures the skills learned can be demonstrated in every day situations such as play time or group activities.
