2 Answers

Make sure the environment is free from hazards and do not encourage problem behavior. Less

Make sure the environment is free from hazards, and that the client is not harming themselves and or others. Make sure to do my best to provide the clients dignity and not encourage the behaviors. I would wait the client out if all of the previously stated are in place and the client is safe. When I see signs that the client has begun to deescalate or some time has past I would restate what the SD was that was previously stated or if the behavior didn’t have anything to do with task demands then I would provide choices vis PECs book and or verbally.

How would you handle a situation in which a child started to throw a tantrum and knocked a chair over?

1 Answers

I would remain calm and, after the child had calmed down a bit, ask them to please pick up the chair. If the child did not pick up the chair, I would keep asking calmly based on the child’s demeanor. I would not push them too far, because that might make the tantrum worse. Staying patient is ALWAYS #1. (Also being constantly aware) Less

Why was I interested in ABA therapy?

1 Answers

I actually didn't know that that was what I was applying for and told them that I was actually a certified peer specialist. I have heard very bad things about ABA, but the interviewer said that their therapy is different than the norm and that's why they like to hire people who are not trained as RBTs yet. They want us to learn their way of doing it instead of the standard way. Less
