Autism Context of Reinforcement
Travis introduces the reader to social context and social thinking in relation to autism spectrum disorder. The reader will learn how we use social thinking to interpret social context to understand how to generalize and apply social skills in different social environments successfully. Travis also describes how behavior therapists can learn to teach social thinking and social context strategies in young learners with autism by providing positive reinforcement in different social contexts. A child is not always going to get a candy bar or a high five for master a skill or improving a behavior. The last thing Travis feels we want is a child thinking he deserves this over generalized amazing award just for doing something nice for someone else. In this book Travis will teach you how to teach young learners with autism how to generalize positive reinforcement and decipher it in different social contexts so that they learn to recognize all kinds of positive reinforcement in all social environments.
