Why would you be a good therapist. What have you done in the past. What terms did I know about ABA - what intensifies behavior, what decreases it, what restraining techniques do I know, what schedules do I know - DRO, DRE, DRI, etc.

2 Answers

I did it in the past, liked it, and got good reviews.

A token system shapes positive behaviors and ignoring, extinction reduces negative behaviors. The rewards have to work within the environment and must be tailored to this child's preference. If a treat is a high motivator token but the facility doesn't want to use food as a reward, go to the next token the child values. Restraint techniques should be dictated by agency policy, procedure and training.
