This is a must have in any Autism Classroom. I divided up my Positive Reinforcements for the ESE Autism Classroom into these two sections: Choice Boards and I am Working For board. This product includes one of the best reinforcement strategies in the classroom for student with autism. Positive reinforcement and choices are a vital part of the Autism classroom. By offering the student choices with the choice board and asking them to pick a reinforcer that they are willing to work for (I am Working For Boards) the student is able to self regulate their activities, work, and emotions throughout the day, These choice boards offer options to their academic, lunch, preferred activities, and calming strategies.
I am working for boards are a great way to motivate the student to work on non preferred activities or tasks. Present the student with a choice board and ask them what they would like to work for. These I am working for boards can vary. For example the boards may have a behavorial goal that they are working towards (maybe a classroom rule) reinforcer.
These boards can also be combined with the choice boards already made, or you can individualize them with the templates provided.
