• Tips & Tidbits

    Use first/then language if your child’s reluctant to complete a task. It helps them understand something fun will happen afterwards. For example, “First, we go to the bathroom. Then, we can go on the swings!”

  • Buddy’s Tips & Bits #22

    Avoid being a broken record.Give your child an instruction instead of a choice. When they need to complete a task, avoid phrasing it as a question. For example: Say, “Time to brush your teeth,” instead of, “Do you want to brush your teeth?”

  • Today’s word is: Behavior Therapists.

    Behavior Therapists are the caring professionals who work with our clients on a daily basis. They’re responsible for implementing a child’s individual treatment plan and accurately recording data that our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) use to ensure children are reaching their goals. #Autism #ASD #AppliedBehaviorAnalysis #ABAtherapy #earlyintervention #thebehaviorexchange #PlanoTexas #FriscoTexas #DFW #Dallas #autismawareness #autismacceptance […]

  • Buddy’s Tips & Tidbits

    Praise your child more than you correct them. If you catch yourself constantly correcting or redirecting them to a more appropriate behavior, balance it out with praise. For example: Our rule of thumb is 4 words of praise and reinforcement for every 1 correction.

    Break down tasks into smaller ones that are easier to accomplish. For example: Washing your hands involves a lot of small steps. Turning on the water can be the first step your child can do by themselves. And be sure to praise them at each step!

    Purposely encourage your child’s independence. For Example: Instead of dressing them in the morning,give them time to do it themselves. Only help when it’s needed, and praise them when they need less help. #Autism #ASD #AppliedBehaviorAnalysis #ABAtherapy #earlyintervention #thebehaviorexchange #PlanoTexas #FriscoTexas #DFW #Dallas #autismawareness #autismacceptance #Boulder #BoulderColorado #Denver #Denverarea #autismmom #specialneeds #autismspeaks #autismfamily #aspergers #autismsupport […]
