Group Description

Our goal is to provide a practicum to Susan Friedman's LLP students and anyone else who is interested in improving their Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) skills to prevent and solve behavior problems with their companion parrots.

Our emphasis is identifying the observable functional relations between behavior and the environment, and positive-first teaching solutions.
There are only two steadfast rules:
(1) To change the behavior of your parrot you must change your behavior first;
(2) positive-first teaching solutions are applied to each other as well as our birds.

Please don't hesitate to ask questions. We are a work in process. Mistakes are our best teaching-learning opportunities. Make several every day.

The three fundamental tenets of the scientific analysis of behavior are as
(1) Behavior has function.
(2) Future behavior is related to past consequences.
(3) Thoughtful antecedent arrangement of the environment enables us to facilitate and maintain successful behaviors.

"The ultimate test of understanding positive reinforcement theory
is not how we practice it with our parrots but how we practice it
with one another."
