The Role of Positive Parenting in ABA Therapy

The way that parents respond to their children makes a tremendous difference when it comes to the effectiveness of treatment for developmental disorders. One of the key themes of ABA therapy is positive reinforcement. Rather than focusing on undesirable behaviors and how to correct them, the recommended approach is to reward desirable behaviors that are incompatable or functionally equivalent to the behaviors one wishes to eliminate. By providing parents with clear, repeatable methods that support desirable behaviors and remove the impetus for challenging behaviors, the learning structures provided by ABA therapy can help this process along.
