Think bonding. 🤝
🌵In ABA, we use pairing with our families as a way for the Instructor and Learner to form a bond and a bit of trust. It gives opportunity for that Instructor to become a reinforcer for that Learner. This is done within the first few sessions to ensure a compatible partnership between not just caregiver and therapist, but kiddo and therapist.
🌵While no two Learners are the same, neither are two sessions. It may take 10 minutes to bond or 10 days, but it is always important to remember it is a continuous activity. The effort will be noticed!💪
📌Reinforcement is any consequence that will increase the probability of a specific behavior occurring again.
➕Positive Reinforcement: "Something Added." A paycheck is an example of a positive reinforcement as it becomes the incentive in going to work.
➖Negative Reinforcement: "Removes an Aversive." The dinging reminder in your car to put your seatbelt on is annoying. It continues to ding until you put your seatbelt on, then the ding stops. Seatbelt on = annoyance gone. Seatbelt use goes up⬆️
