If you’re a parent who has a child showing signs of or diagnosed with autism, you might be looking for affordable ways to help them at home using ABA therapy. You might have questions like, “How can I motivate my child?” “How do I teach them everyday tasks?” I understand these concerns and want to offer some practical solutions for you.
When your child struggles with school or certain situations, like disliking the teacher or classmates, you can use a technique called pairing. This means connecting positive feelings with these situations. For instance, you can associate learning with being “smart” or a classmate with “respect.” It takes patience, but it helps you understand what motivates your child.
Increasing Positive Behaviors
Imagine if your child does something great, like taking out the trash. How can you encourage this behavior? Try a reward system. When they do something well, give them points or treats. This positive reinforcement encourages them to repeat the good behavior, making it more likely to happen again.
