Teachers face many challenges when working with students with autism. These challenges include learning difficulties and behavioral and social difficulties. Often these challenges impact the student’s 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 to changing a student’s behavior in the classroom. In this webinar Nina Finkler, M.Ed., LDT/C, BCBA gave participants a better understanding of reinforcement, strategies for implementing and using reinforcement in the classroom, and specific ideas of what to use for reinforcement.
