How Do I Control Problem Behavior?

aba training applied behavior analysis how to control problem behavior rbt training Apr 15, 2019

A few years ago, we had the opportunity to work with many school districts in the NY/NJ area. Our training was on how to deal with problem behavior of students in the classroom (and/or in what are sometimes called “specials” like gym, art, music, etc.)  Questions always seemed to come back to a basic theme, “How do I control problem behavior?

There is a trick embedded in that question. “Control” of behavior is a momentary thing. Control is fleeting and an illusion, often lasting mere moments when what parents and instructors really want is lasting change. 

Shaping of appropriate, functional behavior is not only possible it is a probable outcome if the science of behavior modification called Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is used. Many teachers and parents note, “I can’t get my child to sit still long enough for them to learn anything…” or variations of “when I present my student (child) with work to perform they act up.”  

These are common everyday challenges expressed by teachers and parents alike. So, is there a solution? Yes, and it’s based on the science of Applied Behavior Analysis.

The RBT (Registered Behavior Techniciantm) (a training series created and controlled through the professional Behavior Analyst Certification Board), provides parents and instructors with a 40-hour progressive training course based on the scientific principles of ABA.

The RBT course is broken down into bite-sized modules so you can proceed at your own pace.  Whether you are taking the course to learn to manage problem behavior or to increase desired behavior, the learning is invaluable. Are these extravagant promises? We think not. If you review the testimonials of the thousands of people who complete the RBT training you can read for yourself the impact this knowledge is having right now, with learners who simply need a proven method to help themselves and loved ones.

Whatever your goal is, the RBT course is a no-risk training to improve the quality of life for yourself,  students and members of your family through scientific methods.
