For students, including those with autism, when you see problem behavior (crying, whining, hitting, biting, flopping to the ground, etc.), oftentimes the demands are too high and/or the reinforcement is too low. To improve this situation, teachers, therapists, and other classroom staff, will learn about the about the importance of pairing. Pairing is a behavioral procedure whereby materials, environments, and people are conditioned with reinforcement. Once this happens, we’re ready to begin to teach. However, this is not a “one and done” strategy. In this workshop, participants will:
- Be able to define pairing.
- Learn strategies to effectively pair with materials and environments for better rapport.
- Expand pairing activities to include peers and curriculum.
