Intensive ABA Therapy (Youth Age Group)

Most children with ASD require intensive ABA therapy for the best gains and to improve their skills and behaviors. At ICAN-B, we strongly believe that the intensity (e.g., hours) of ABA therapy should be based on the child’s needs. In other words, some children might need more hours of ABA therapy and some children might not. Many factors come into play when determining the intensity of ABA hours for your child. A number of assessment tools might be used in our FBA interviews, for example:

These factors include:

Your child’s functioning level

Severity of challenging behaviors


Child’s availability

Family availability.

Each child with ASD is unique. They tend to have their own strengths and weaknesses. For example, one child might learn faster in a structured environment and another child might learn quicker in a looser and more natural environment. With that bear in mind, ICAN-B thus utilizes a combination of different ABA teaching approaches in our therapy. In general, our teaching approaches can be broken down into two subtypes:

1) Discrete Trial Teaching (DTT), which commonly known to be a more structured type of teaching approach and

2) natural environment teaching (NET), which commonly is seen as a looser and play-based type of teaching approach. DTT is a teaching approach developed by behavior analysts basing on the principles of Behavior Analysis. It breaks skills down into short and simple tasks to make the learning process easier and faster for the child. On the other hand, NET is also a teaching approach that is developed basing on the principles of Behavior Analysis. However, the focus of NET is to utilize naturally occurring opportunities or to contrive teaching opportunities in the child’s environment to achieve teaching purposes.

Below is an info-graphic to illustrate the differences between the two approaches:

Teaching Methods Structure:

Discrete Trial Training (DTT)

Repetition of questions, immediate prompting, fast Pace Instruction, and immediate reinforcement.

Teaching Methods Structure:
Natural Environment Teaching (NET) Learner Led Instruction, based on learner interest, and contact with natural contingencies/reinforcement.

Reducción de Conducta

Todos los planes de reducción de la conducta consisten en:

Estrategias proactivas, enseñanza de conductas de reemplazo y estrategias reactivas.

El equipo clínico de ICAN-B realiza evaluaciones para garantizar que se diseñe una intervención basada en la función.

Proceso para la Reducción de la Conducta

Paso 1: Evaluación del comportamiento funcional (FBA)

Paso 2: Identificar funciones

Paso 3: El equipo clínico de ICAN-B investiga los comportamientos proactivos, de reemplazo y reactivos para garantizar que las estrategias sean efectivas en el manejo de comportamientos problemáticos.

Paso 4: Una vez que el equipo clínico de ICAN-B haya identificado con éxito el plan adecuado, los padres o cuidadores se incluirán en el proceso de capacitación para garantizar el mantenimiento y la implementación del plan.

El equipo clínico analizará semanalmente los datos recopilados durante las sesiones para garantizar que se realice el progreso adecuado..
