Requesting And Reinforcement

Have you seen The A-Word, a web series following a family as their child undergoes CARD ABA therapy?

Meet Jack, a CARD ABA client who receives 25 hours a week. Over the last two years we’ve gotten to know and love Jack as another member of the #CARDFamily. In this episode, Jack Riley begins verbally requesting for things he wants. This is great! However, this also can prove difficult for his parents, as they are supposed to reinforce each request.

When should a parent decrease one-to-one reinforcement? What other skills should be introduced once requesting becomes more natural? Find out in this episode of The A-Word.
