APPLIED BEHAVIOURAL ANALYSIS (ABA)

Momentum Learning Services

MLS programs are based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), using the most up-to-date teaching techniques that have been derived from research within this field. Their treatment model systematically targets skill acquisition and management of competing behaviours by using positive reinforcement strategies to accelerate learning. By building on each success through repeated practice of those skills targeted, they gradually increase the complexity of what is taught and therefore the individual’s ability to be more independent also increases.
