Autism: Challenging Behaviour – BBC Four, UK-SBA Response
The UK Society for Behaviour Analysis very much welcomes the debate which will be stimulated by the BBC4 programme Autism: Challenging Behaviour. We hope it will bring ABA to the attention of the widest possible audience of parents of children with autism and all other interested professionals and stakeholders. There are several myths about behaviour analytic approaches to supporting people with autism: the BBC has addressed some of these and demonstrated the excellent results that can be achieved when behaviour analytic strategies are used by qualified professionals. We would also like to point out that in addition to being one of the most strongly supported interventions for children with autism, behaviour analytic treatments can be helpful for a range of other populations and settings – from improving teachers’ classroom management skills to improving outcomes for people with addictive conditions.
UK-SBA is supported through the generous donations of the following organisations:
