Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is most notably used in the treatment of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. But in truth, ALL children experience problem behaviors at some point in their lives - from the “terrible twos” to the rebellious teen years. This blog is designed to provide an overview of ABA and how it can be a useful tool for typically developing children, teenagers, and even your husband;)

The Good Behavior Game

For the teachers out there:

This is a research article describing the "Good Behavior Game".  Basically you divide your classroom into teams.  Set specific rules and when any rule is broken by a single student their group recieves a point.  The group with the least points at the end of the day gets a reward.  If multiple groups have the same number of points then both groups get the reward.  It sounds very interesting!  The rewards can be pretty simple:  going to recess a little earlier than the other group, a special project, class helpers, etc.
