Article summary (posted Jul 20, 2010):


Applied behavior analysis (ABA) may be helpful in the classroom when used to identify natural causes of social behavior in a student with autism.

Structural analysis is a way of looking closely at a person’s behavior to see what is causing that behavior. Many studies have shown that structural analysis is helpful in finding the cause behind different behaviors in different students, and can be used to change behavior. This study looked to see how structural analysis can be used to help increase social behavior in students with autism. In the case of one boy, the authors found that the student was more social if the teacher was closer. The authors suggest that time be spent finding out what types of things may cause a child with autism to show more social behavior.
