Characteristics of Effective Reinforcer Delivery with Children with an ASD

By: Adora Bright
KING CITY, Ontario - Oct. 22, 2020 - PRLog -- There are many characteristics when it comes to reinforcer delivery with a child with ASD. Enthusiastic, differential and varied are just a few of the methods to implement when looking for an effective way to work with a child with an ASD.


Reinforcer delivery should occur as soon after the target behaviour occurs as possible (ideally within 1-3 seconds). The longer the delay is the weaker the relation between the target behaviour and the reinforcer. As well, the longer the delay, the more likely that another behaviour will occur (not necessarily a desirable one) between the target behaviour and the delivery of the reinforcer thus reinforcing the second behaviour rather than the target.


A reinforcer designated to increase target behaviour should be delivered dependent on the occurrence of that target behaviour. lithe designated reinforcer is not freely available and available only following target behaviour(s), then a situation is created where a child is less likely to satiate on the reinforcer and more likely to continue performing the target behaviour as it is the only way to get the reinforcer.

To learn more about these characteristics, check out our blog post on our website.
