This educational session teaches the importance of pairing preferred items and activities with the parent or interventionists to make the adult a “conditioned reinforcer”. This increases the likelihood of cooperation with instructions, which leads to more efficient teaching/learning opportunities.

Participants are also taught the importance of teaching the child to make requests for things the child wants. This is “manding” and participants are supported in understanding how manding can be accomplished through voice, sign or picture exchange. For more information, please contact Joseph or visit
