Curious what ABA looks like?
I had never actually seen what an Applied Behavioral Analysis session looks like so I looked it up. Anyways, this is a pretty short video of an ABA session. (By the way, I’d love to hear any thoughts on if this looks similar to what you’ve seen if you’re familiar with ABA)
I have to say, as a little kid I would have done pretty decently with a session like that, other than I didn’t like M&Ms much.

They did this for me for a little while when I was in first grade or kindergarten, because I wasn’t Autistic, but apparently I had issues.
I’m planning on doing this after graduate school… I love behavior analysis, it’s so incredible how it can touch children’s lives for the better. I know a young boy with autism who you would never think has autism, because he had early intervention and an in-home therapist. There really needs to be more funding for this on a large scale, because it is so beneficial.
Thank you for sharing this video. Many people, like yourself, do not know what ABA therapy is like or what it is. So posting a video is pretty much the easiest way to show it!
This is a good model of what ABA looks like. I am a teacher for children with autism and I work at a school that utilizes ABA 100%. I fully support it. The video is good in that it also models token economy. Although you may disagree with the use of M&Ms, we have to find what motivates each child, whether it means toys, vegetables, fruits or candy. Any questions? feel free to get in touch with me!
my sister does ABA. she demonstrated what she did in sessions for us. it was a lot like this, really repetitive and high-energy. the kid she worked with liked being tickled instead of m&ms =]
