· Replicate the real world for better preparation for a realistic social setting.
o Such as school where they will encounter multiple teachers, other school staff, numerous peers.
o Such as work where they will encounter multiple bosses, varied coworkers, public, unmotivating rules, and sudden changes.
o Such as in a community where they will encounter multiple authorities.
· Break rigid behaviors vs reinforcing those behaviors.
· Develop self-management tools to tolerate multiple conditions, people, and environments.
- Avoid change trauma.
- Builds an expectation and tolerance for change and transition in trainers, parapro’s and to different classrooms teachers or substitute teachers, etc.
- Staff changes will be routine, so when they happen, they will feel natural and ‘ok’ vs traumatizing.
- Provide a protection against lapses and training losses in service, which is important to ensuring your full ABA prescription is accessible and deliverable.
