Most people think what I do is about using rewards and incentive to get children to stop inappropriate behaviors. That's not really what ABA is about.
I like to describe what I do as manipulating the environment in such a way that the child has no reason to maintain challenging, aggressive behaviors and every reason to adapt appropriate social behaviors.
Or put another way:
"If you wish to modify your child's behavior, you have to change yours".
Your behavior is what will ultimately determine the success of your child's ABA program.
