These sessions are designed for parents to have a better understanding of what reinforcement is, and how to use reinforcement effectively with their child. Using a reinforcement inventory preferred items and activities will be identified. Preference assessments will help establish a reinforcement hierarchy. Preferred items and activities are not necessarily effective reinforcers. Reinforcement is by definition an item or activity that increases the future likelihood of the desired behaviour.

Reinforcement used effectively can decrease undesirable behaviours and increase desired behaviours.

Duration: 1.5 hours per week for 4 weeks

Start as early as July 13, 2020.

To be scheduled with Therapist based on Caregiver availability. Sessions to be scheduled between July and September.
