The book Embracing Autism: The Preschool Years | Building Positive Behaviors at School with Visual Supports embraces the fundamental principles of Applied Behavior Analysis or ABA to address challenging behaviors. Decades of research point to the promise of focusing on antecedents to prevent challenging behaviors from interfering with all aspects of a child’s development. Educators can support children through a variety of antecedent-based interventions that decrease stress and increase success through behavioral momentum. While it may take time, the gains of teaching desired behaviors, practicing and reinforcing those behaviors consistently is priceless.
