Positive reinforcement is a powerful tool for shaping or changing an autistic child's behavior. We offer a wide selection of autism reinforcer toys for your ABA, VB, or special education program. From therapist favorites like bubbles to stretchy, tactile toys or putty, we have the reinforcers you need to keep the kids you are working with motivated; especially when verbal praise is not motivating enough.
It’s always best to have a variety on hand so that they don’t become routine or boring. Try to vary the features of the toys; have some that are tactile, light up, or feature cause and effect functions. Also, it’s very motivating for some children to have a choice of items to work for. Remember these toys work best when you combine them with verbal praise or intrinsic reinforcers; like fun, subjects of interest, or curiosity.
