Learning occurs everywhere and all the time; whether it's planned or unplanned.  Accessing Abilities, LLC, knows that if a learner is taught in a way that meets his/her learning needs, and if that skill is something the learner is ABLE to do, then that new skill will occur more often... but only if it's reinforced. 

We learn desired behaviors, the ones we want to see more often, in the same way we learn interfering behaviors. Those are the ones that get in the way with:      





Interfering behaviors can significantly impact a learner's quality of life, affect their environment, or be a barrier for their family and peers. Sometimes the interfering behavior can be extreme or other times they are "get in the way" behaviors.  ​All interfering behaviors happen for a reason, and oftentimes they occur because that behavior is either effective (in that it gets us something), or because of a skill deficit.  With behavior analysis, we can analyze the interfering behaviors and determine WHY it's happening.    

From there, we can help teachers, staff, family, bosses, etc. learn HOW to teach and/or reinforce the desired behaviors so we see more of what we want to see, and in a socially and age-appropriate  manner.
