Some Progressive Teaching Methods
Recorded in 2023
One of the distinguishing features of a progressive approach to ABA as it relates to autism and autism intervention is that the main source of control for the interventionist’s behavior is the client and the client’s context. Implementation of this approach requires methods that are flexible and can change based on moment-to-moment analysis of relevant variables (e.g., current and past performance, general health, client input). Dr. Joe Cihon provides an in-depth description of several methods that may be considered progressive in their implementation as well as how methods can be implemented in a progressive manner. Challenges with the implementation of these methods and research examples will also be provided.
