Autism ABA 
Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention Program for Practitioners

The mission of BBA is to provide education in accordance with international standards, as well as to support experts and parents to apply the scientific-based effective applications of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), which is known as ABA in the world, in the most comprehensive and practical way, to enable individuals with autism to reach their full potential. 

Since the causes of autism are not known precisely today, it is not possible to take measures. However, with behavioral intervention programs based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) discipline, permanent and comprehensive progress can be achieved in many skill areas of individuals with autism. ABA was accepted as the main effective method in the treatment of children with autism by the United States Department of Public Health Services in 1999, and the intensive use of this method by individuals with autism was guaranteed by law. None of the other methods offer a scientific basis comparable to ABA.

In the ABA approach, the individual is motivated to learn and the skills that can be used in many situations can be taught effectively. At the same time, effective methods can be offered to reduce socially unacceptable anger, repetitive and harmful behaviors.

Purpose of the Program:  The main goal of this program is to provide the participants with theoretical and practical trainings on how to teach individuals with autism the necessary skills based on ABA principles in various learning environments and normal conditions and how to act in situations that will have positive results for the individual.

The program consists of three levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Beginner and intermediate level consists of 2 days face-to-face training and the third course consists of online trainin. The Sertificate of AutismABA Comprehensive Education Program is given to the participants who complete the three courses, 180 hours of practice and pass the exam at the end.

 Program content: The program includes teaching participants the basic information expected from an instructor while teaching a child with autism. This information is divided into the following areas:

 
Measuremen  |  Assessment | Skill Acquisition  |  Behavior Reduction |  Documentation and Reporting |  Professional Conduct

 

The program also includes the basic skills that an educator should have when working with a child during implementation. Other skills that are required to be performed by a teacher but are not included in theoretical trainings, are also determined and acquired during practical training.
