The 4-D’s

If you see a challenging behaviour, and your formal ABA strategies don’t work to reduce it.  Try something different.  Same ABA logic.  Different flavors.

The 4-D’s: Detach – Deform – Demonstrate – Declare

Detach: Detach emotionally from the stress.  Your student does not purposely make you mad.  The child must have something to say.

Deform: Break down the situation into A-B-C.  What is the motive? What is the behaviour? What does the child want by doing this?

Demonstrate: Show the student what to say or do to get what s/he wants.

Declare: Officially praise the student for his or her success in doing the appropriate behaviour.

Hope you like this idea of “ABA Made Simple”.
