Behavior analysis (BA) is the study of the processes by which humans and animals learn, i.e. change their behavior as
a result of interacting with the environment. From a behavior analysis perspective, the ability to learn is
an evolved tool, part of our biological endowment. Simply, it is our nature to behave for effect – to be
effective. Learning and welfare are compromised to the extent that effective behavior is blocked. We can
enhance learning and welfare by increasing learners’ control over their valued outcomes. The focus of this
talk is an overview of the science-based principles and practices relevant to improving learners’
effectiveness by providing more control, safely and practically.
