How Do I Educate My Child – RemotelyJul 11, 2021
How to make home instruction easier? That is a huge question, one that is on the mind of many parents today. It is not an easy task. It is surely not a ‘fast’ task. The good news is a solution based on decades-old, proven evidence-based principles does exist. That good news comes in the form of our online training called the Registered Behavior Technician or RBT training course. The RBT course is based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles and best practices. ABA is the science of behavior change.
Teachers and educators go through a series of coursework, internships, and supervision experiences BEFORE they are permitted to teach. That noted, if you are a parent or someone helping to instruct children (learners) during home instruction because of the COVID 19 pandemic, what follows can help you.
Your biggest challenge is: How to obtain and maintain the learner’s attention in the first place. You cannot teach someone who isn’t paying attention. Any parent can tell you when the learner is engaged, only then can you teach effectively. Remember the song and sounds of the ice cream man truck in the summer? When a learner hears that song playing or bells ringing to indicate the presence of a nice cold treat during the dog days of summer – you have his/her attention! There are very few children who after one trip to the little white trucks dispensing those treats that need to be reminded of what that jingle means when the truck rolls around the next time.
In ABA lingo, attention that is reinforced with ice cream, maintains the learning. A simple concept that can be applied to other areas of learning.
Home instruction is not easy. It can be very frustrating. Learning this and other principles and best practices can make life easier and much less stressful:
- Increase the motivation of the learner to stay engaged.
- Reinforce the learner as they get instruction.
- Learn how to “shape” the behavior of the learner over time, to make sure that their experience with you is like the ‘ice cream man’ a favourable one.
We think you would love to see your learner running towards you as opposed to from you when your instruction starts. Our online RBT training course can teach you how to increase that likelihood using ABA strategies.
The RBT coursework is offered on a no-risk, money back guaranteed basis. It will help you if your goal is to provide effective instruction and behavioral control during that instruction. If you’d like, the RBT coursework can also serve as a foundation for anyone who might be interested in pursuing the credential by following the process outlined by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board.
