The world of Applied Behavior Analysis is filled with amazing empirically proven interventions. An intervention or methodology which is founded within the realm of ABA and is repeatedly shown effective through applied research becomes what is known as a “technology.” These technologies are the foundation of programming.

There are hundreds of these technologies that are extremely pertinent and useful in ABA. Below is just one example of a common technology that is used in ABA.

Behavioral Cusp

A behavioral Cusp is a behavior that allows an individual access to new environments, reinforcers, contingencies, responses and stimulus controls. Essentially, it is a learned skill that opens new doors for the individual.

The best example of a Behavioral cusp is a baby learning to crawl. Think of how their life changes! They can access so many different environments, toys, people, etc. because of this one new behavior. Learning to crawl, then allows for them to build more skill repertoires as well!
