What is reinforcement and why is it so important? In this presentation we teach you what reinforcement is and describe why reinforcement is important to use when teaching children. Many children engage in unwanted behaviours and struggle to learn new skills.
This presentation provides common examples of how Positive Reinforcement and Negative Reinforcement can be used to increase new and appropriate behaviours. In addition, this presentation also describes comprehensively how to identify potential reinforcers. Lastly, this presentation describes how to use differential reinforcement and establish contingencies to promote a decrease in unwanted behaviours while increasing wanted behaviours. Reinforcement is key to teaching skills and this presentation outlines how to use reinforcement to your advantage when teaching your child.
