Morals , Reasoning, Values & Ethics
Recently, however, some scholars have challenged the notion of science as value-free, and thereby have raised questions about the authority of science and its methods.
However, it is a wrong approach to consider science as being value-free or objective. In practice, science incorporates cultural morals, values reasoning, and ethics. Values, in turn, can be objective when they are based on generally accepted principles. Scientists strongly abhor fraud, error, and pseudoscience, while they value reliability, testability, accuracy, precision, generality, and simplicity of concepts. The pursuit of science as an activity is itself an implicit endorsement of the value of developing knowledge of the material world.
There are certain moral values that all youth need, such as concern for people, empathy, and kindness that are important in setting research priorities in science and in determining the uses of science. There is a need to incorporate these humanitarian values into a daily lifestyle for children, while maintaining and reinforcing the intrinsic values of the ABA program. In the quest ABA development, ethical values should not be neglected. The humanitarian values found in moral education can complement the intrinsic values found in science, such as objectivity, rationality, practicality, honesty, and accuracy.
What is Biobehavioral Psychology ?
Biobehavioral Psychology. The concentration emphasizes the scientific study of the neural and brain mechanisms that enable mind, consciousness, and behavior.
What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?
Behavior analysis is a scientifically validated approach to understanding behavior and how it is affected by the environment. In this context, “behavior” refers to actions and skills. “Environment” includes any influence – physical or social – that might change or be changed by one’s behavior.
Behavior analysis focuses on the principles that explain how learning takes place. Positive reinforcement is one such principle. When a behavior is followed by some sort of reward, the behavior is more likely to be repeated. Through decades of research, the field of behavior analysis has developed many techniques for increasing useful behaviors and reducing those that may cause harm or interfere with learning.
Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is the use of these techniques and principles to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior.
These techniques can be used in structured situations such as a classroom lesson as well as in “everyday” situations such as family dinnertime or the neighborhood playground. Some ABA of our sessions involve one-on-one interaction between the therapist and the participant. We also offer group instruction for parents.

ABA for Social Behavior

Adaptive living skills include gross and fine motor skills, eating and food preparation, toileting, dressing, personal self-care, domestic skills, time and punctuality, money and value, home and community orientation, and work skills.
Behavioral Coaching: Applied Behavior Analysis in Sports and Athletic Training
Applied Behavior Analysis is used in sports and athletic training to teach and reinforce skills used in training and competition. Behavioral coaching has been used in sports from football to gymnastics to swimming both to improve athlete training regimes, such as enforcing health diet and regular exercise programs, and to boost the performance of particular athletic skills, such as maintaining proper body form.
Our Evaluation Procedure
When The Institutes began there was no reliable evaluation procedure to help youth become success . Tiil and the staff uses both the ABA Evaluation procedure along side our in-house evaluation; A reliable set of procedures to evaluate youth and young adult.
The Institutes Developmental Profile™ measures the growth and development of the brain. This Profile allows us to evaluate a child and make an exact comparison between the hurt child and his well peers. This provides an accurate rate of growth for the child and establishes a baseline against which each child can be evaluated to determine his progress.
Each time a child returns to The Institutes, a new Developmental Profile is done and a new program is created based upon that Profile
