Parent Training Tip–Positive Reinforcement
At ABA Therapy Solutions we take pride in focusing on your child’s individual strengths and positive behaviors. Positive reinforcement is a strategy in which reinforcement is given immediately following a behavior. In simplest terms, when the child displays positive behavior, the child is rewarded. This reinforcement is given in order to increase the occurrence of positive behavior (Applied Behavioral Analysis Program Guide, 2020). The goal of positive reinforcement is to teach correct behavior as well as increase your child’s positive behavior. A bonus of using positive reinforcement is the act of celebrating your child’s accomplishments and acknowledging their hard work. Learn more
