This presentation delves into the intricate landscape of error correction procedures within Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Error correction procedures play a pivotal role in the efficacy of ABA interventions, aiming to address and rectify errors made during the learning process. The presentation will look deeper into different error correction techniques, including prompt fading, errorless learning, and differential strategies of error correction. By exploring the nuanced area of error correction procedures, this presentation aims to offer insights into optimizing ABA practices while considering the unique characteristics and needs of each learner. Furthermore, the discussion will evaluate the pros and cons of using various error correction procedures within the framework of ABA interventions. While some techniques may foster rapid skill acquisition and reduce instances of errors, they might inadvertently impede the development of independent problem-solving skills and hinder generalization across different contexts. Conversely, other strategies, although promoting independence and generalization, may entail a slower learning curve and necessitate more extensive time and resources. By carefully weighing the advantages and disadvantages of each error correction approach, this presentation will help practitioners with the knowledge and understanding needed to develop ABA interventions effectively to meet the unique needs and goals of individuals in ABA therapy
