The foundational teaching to help you reinforce positive behaviors and decrease unwanted behaviors.

  • Learn the optimal timing for teaching behavior skills
  • Stop unintentional behavior reinforcement
  • Prevent re-occurrences of unwanted behaviors

Did you know that many unwanted behaviors are actually signs of underlying avoidance?

  • Learn how children use unwanted behavior to delay, avoid, control or get out of activities
  • Identify early signs of and record examples of avoidant behavior
  • Describe to others on the assessment team a child’s performance on tasks and activities so you can make a game plan
