Incidental teaching is a strategy that uses ABA principles to provide structured learning opportunities in the natural environment. Here, we discuss some common misconceptions around incidental teaching and how to use the concept appropriately. We also discuss the differences between incidental teaching and natural environmental teaching and provide tips on how to contrive learning opportunities.
We’re giving our listeners another sneak peek into what it’s like in our mentorship meetings. We discuss how to use role playing and replacement skills when working on manding. We also talk about balancing discrete environmental teaching with natural environment teaching and when it’s appropriate to use one over the other.
