Teachers face many challenges when working with students with autism. These challenges include learning difficulties and behavioral and social difficulties, all of which can impact students’ overall success within an educational setting. One of the often misused and misunderstood tools that teachers can use is reinforcement. Reinforcement is a critical component of changing a student’s behavior in the classroom.
This edWebinar will give participants a better understanding of reinforcement, strategies to implement and use reinforcement in the classroom, and specific ideas about what to use for reinforcement. The presentation will be of interest to preK-12 teachers, school and district leaders, therapists, and specialists. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
