Jessie and Sara are from Family Beeginnings, where they provide family focused, solution based, ABA therapy and consulting. They spend a lot of time mentoring BCBA candidates and share what they focus on to help boost their skill set. We also talk about client advocacy and bridging the gap between the field of ABA and the school system.
Every ABA professional should be familiar with the four functions of behavior and how to identify them. Through their behavior, our students and clients are communicating something to us, and it’s our job to figure out what that is. Here, we cover all four functions of behavior, provide real-life examples, and give tips on how to recognize and work with each function.
Ling and Jane join us on the show today and explain their AAC platform, Linggo. Communication is a complex concept and requires an interdisciplinary approach, while keeping the needs of the child front and center. Linggo is much different than traditional AACs and the company also provides training for both parents and practitioners, which helps with adoption and adherence.
