Activity Based Intervention

Providing empirically validated methods of instruction to clients is one of the most important roles taken on by Board Certified Behavior Analysts. Using a service delivery model that not only sparks a client’s interest and motivation, but that can also be implemented by parents is ideal and achievable. The use of activity-based instruction, which is child directed, and embeds individual goals and objectives in routine planned or child-initiated activities, will allow Behavior Analysts to meet that goal. Once skill deficits are identified by using a comprehensive assessment, goals should be developed and prioritized based on function, how well the skill will generalize across people and environments, and developmental appropriateness. Once goals are selected, the individual targets can be embedded into activities that are of high interest to the client. When a client is highly motivated and the activity is part of the typical family routine, the opportunity for parent engagement increases. Strategies on how to include identified targets into various activities that are meaningful to families, as well as how to take meaningful data on selected targets will be discussed.

Within this presentation, participants will:

    (1) be introduced to natural environment teaching and activity-based instruction
    (2) learn how to identify targets from a treatment plan that can be embedded in activities
    (3) examine the factors that will lead to increased family involvement
    (4) gain access to knowledge tools for assisting with identifying meaningful family routines and data collection
