ABA comprises interventions obtained from the principles of behavior analysis designed to analyze and change behavior in a precisely measurable and accountable manner. It employs strategies based on scientific principles of behavior that are designed to build socially useful repertoires and reduce problematic ones. The defining assumption of ABA is that behavior is learned and controlled by contingencies within the environment.
School Year Tutoring
At either your residence or local library, I will work on any subject or skill which your child may require extra support in. I can provide multi-sensory instruction in order to approach subjects in a different way or a more in depth way than that which was learned in the classroom.

Discrete trial instruction (DTI) is a special form of teaching used to maximize learning for students who struggle with more traditional methods, and who require repetition to learn. DTI relies heavily on the antecedents and consequences of behavior. DTI differs from other instructional methods because it relies heavily on intensity and structure. It is designed to be a formal, exact unit of teaching.
