In ABA, a task analysis can be used to break down larger, more complex skills into smaller steps or actions to make things more manageable for our learners. Task analyses can be used to teach a variety of social and life skills. Here, we discuss how to create a task analysis from scratch, the different types of chaining, and how to use prompts to build independence.
Life skills are a critical part of the success of our students and help them to grow into independent adults. Here, we cover the best ways to assess life skills and how to make a plan of which skills our learners need to know. We also discuss why it’s important to start at a young age and how to use assessments.
