Reinforcement

Quick Insight about Reinforcement

There are two different kinds of reinforcement for a child on the Autism Spectrum Negative and positive.

Negative reinforcement is any kind of attention/reaction to a bad behavior. For example: your child is throwing a fit in order to get something he/she wants. Because you don’t want to deal with it you give in and give her/him what she wants.

Positive reinforcement is any kind of attention/reaction to good behavior. For example: your child clean up his/her room all by herself and you praise him/her for her good behavior.
In therapy a reinforce can be anything from a toy, food or just clapping and cheering for a child
Reinforcement no matter if it’s negative or positive will shape or eliminate a behavior
