Lecture on Applied Behavior Analysis for Autism

Here’s a lecture giving a basic overview of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), by Elyse Wiseman, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). ABA is an evidence-based practice to reduce autism behavior symptoms.

  1. Hey my name is Joe and i really liked this lecture. I just have a couple questions as to what behavior is considered normal or what the “goal behavior” would be. Are you looking to change the persons outlook on their environment or just change how they react to their internal reactions to the outside world. Also when looking to help a childs attention on a topic they don’t necessarily find interesting, how do you increase the amount of time focussed and their ability to think critically about the topic?
