Abstract
(English)
Behavior Analysis is the science that studies human behavior. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a process of systematic application of interventions whose principles are based on Learning Theory. The aim is to improve socially significant behaviors; the interventions are responsible for changing the behavior. ABA is successfully applied for educating autistic children. This paper discusses the design of an eLearning environment, based on ABA principles, for delivering accessible education to autistic children. ABA is a complex methodology and it is crucial to maintain therapy coherence between all the caregivers while allowing them maximum flexibility on the ABA application to better adapt to individual child responses.
