Applied Behavioral Assessment

In order to replace or reduce the onset of inappropriate behaviors, we use Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) methods to address a wide range of behaviors and social skills. Through the use of different strategies, our goals are:

  • Increase on-task behavior, social interactions, and communication skills

  • Development of self-control and self-monitoring methods in order to acquire job-related skills

  • Acquisition of adaptive daily living skills such as toileting, hand washing, and tooth brushing

  • Decrease and replace challenging behaviors (e.g. physical aggression, self-injurious behaviors, fights) with more appropriate behaviors


Some of the teaching methods used at Bright Futures Academy include:

  • Discrete trial training

  • Incidental teaching

  • Prompt fading procedures

  • Task analysis

  • Video modeling

  • Self-monitoring

  • Small group instruction
