Positive Reinforcement In Autism

Positive reinforcement is a part of treatment of autism. Moreover, a part of ABA therapy, used widely and effectively in the management of autism.

ABA- Applied Behavior Analysis revolves around using rewards and incentives to motivate kids with Autism Spectrum Disorder to act in a desirable way and, at the same time avoid problematic behavior.

ABA therapy relies on ABC model for behavior modification.
That is:
1. Antecedent– situation is created, which leads the patient to behave in a specific manner. Example – bright light or loud noises.
2. Behavior – the reaction to stimulus is noted.
3. Consequence – the consequence could be positive ( to encourage good habits) or negative ( to prevent problematic answers)

Once this is understood, implementation of positive reinforcements becomes easy. Then the parent needs to work on:
• Identify needs – observe what needs to be changed in the child.
• Choose reinforces- the rewards that yield the best results which is further discovered through trial and error.
• Working together– parents, caretaker and therapists must all work together in implementing positive reinforcements and encouraging desirable habits.
