Characteristics of Effective Reinforcer Delivery with Children with an ASD
By: Adora Bright
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)
