    Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA): A scientific approach to understanding behavior and how it is affected by the environment. Behavior refers to all kinds of actions and skills (not just misbehavior), and environment includes all sorts of physical and social events that might change or be changed by one's behavior. ABA is the use of those techniques and principles to address socially important problems and to bring about meaningful behavior change (Autism Speaks, autismspeaks.org, 2011).

    Differentiated Instruction: An instructional concept that maximizes learning for all students, regardless of skill level or background. It is based on the fact that in a typical classroom, students vary in their academic abilities, learning styles, personalities, interests, background knowledge and experiences, and levels of motivation for learning. When a teacher differentiates instruction, he or she uses the best teaching practices and strategies to create different pathways that respond to the needs of diverse learners (Staff Development for Educators, 2006).
