There are fifty-nine aba programs available on the ABA Programs screen. Each program can be customized.
Users create aba sessions from the available programs and those they create themselves. Within each program
users can select what objects they want to teach by flagging them as 'working on'. Objects flagged as working
on will come up each time a trial is run. If no objects are flagged as working on, all objects will be randomly
generated. Any program that has an object flagged with a check mark under w for working on will appear
in the student's Folder under Working on.
You have the flexibility of adding objects to programs you are currently working on if a particular object you want
to teach is not in one of the existing programs. New programs can also be added. Users can make totally new programs
that they create themselves.
