Jefferson Township employs behaviorists to support students who have difficulty demonstrating age-appropriate behaviors that may impact his or her education or that of other students. The principals of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) are employed. ABA is the science of human behavior, using empirically validated principles to change socially significant behaviors.
Observations and measurable behaviors are analyzed within an environment to determine why those behaviors are, or are not, occurring. Treatment strategies can then be applied within the school environment to bring about positive and meaningful change.
