Putting EBPs into Practice: Reinforcement AUTISM

For more information or to register for this training, visit: https://www.cahelp.org/

The National Clearinghouse on Autism Evidence and Practice released the 2020 evidence-based practices report identifying 28 evidence-based practices (EBPs) for autism. Reinforcement is one of the 28 EBPs identified. This training will discuss reinforcement, what it is and isn’t, how to individualize it, and why it’s used. Examples of the different types of reinforcement will be shared and demonstrations of how it can be used to support student success in various domains will be provided. Participants will independently view an online module then participate in a scheduled 3-hour session connecting information from the module to practice. By the end of the training participants will be able to identify at least 3 types of reinforcers, share how they know something is reinforcing, identify the difference between immediate and delayed reinforcements, and list a minimum of three potential reinforcers for at least one learner with autism.

Intended Audience

General educators, special educators, service providers, clinicians, and families.
